BAck to the office? Not so fast…

People costs account for more than half of almost any agency’s revenue. During the pandemic, every agency learned how to deliver services with its people working remotely. Now, agency leaders face possibly the biggest choice they will make for many years: work from home? Return to the office? Or, adopt a hybrid system?

At the PRovoke Global Summit 21, Julian Boulding, discussed these issues and more with Carol Levine, CEO,  energiPR, Canada, Christian Josephi, Managing Partner, Panama PR, Germany, Graham Goodkind, Chairman & Founder Frank PR, UK and Valerie Chan, Founder, Plat4orm PR, USA.
