Going Mobile Build a 21st Century Workforce that Really Works

The mobile workforce is making its way into every sector of our economy. Bolstered by technology, today’s workforce is Skyping from their kitchen tables and managing projects from Starbucks. Entire departments are working from home or on the road, saving their companies money, driving productivity, reducing our carbon footprint, and creating flexible work environments that lead to higher job satisfaction.

But what are the cybersecurity threats? How do you manage out-of-sight workers? Is it fair to flex with some positions, while others are tethered to their cubicles? How does it impact culture?

Get the answers you need at our second Core Member Breakfast of 2017, “Going Mobile: Build a 21st Century Workforce that Really Works.”


Business technologist and Ft. Wright mayor, Dave Hatter, will moderate a panel of business owners, human resource and cybersecurity experts who will share insights to help Goering Center members interested in creating flexible work environments.

Join us to learn how to navigate the three Cs of the 21st Century workplace – culture, connectivity and cybersecurity:

  • Protect yourself from cyber threats
  • Make the managerial shift – from productivity to outcomes
  • Get guidelines and policies to help you communicate the rules
  • Hear telework best practices that can positively impact your culture
