The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of business continuity. Millions of office workers worldwide shifted to working from home, in some cases literally overnight.

Phil Thompson from the finance department at Alight will discuss closing a financial period remotely. Matt Lawrence, VP - Commercial Lead EMEA at Alight, will talk about Workday deployment in a 100% remote model. They’ll both share how remote working has been different in key areas like finance and deployment, the tools they use, best practices and lessons learned.
