Best practices and learnings for remote work

Join Toptal on Tuesday, March 10 for the first event in our Future of Work series. We will have a stellar lineup of remote evangelists sharing some of their learnings and best practices for remote work. After the talks there will be a short panel discussion, followed by time to network over drinks and food.

We can embrace the future of work right now
Nadia Udalova & Rayana Verissimo of GitLab

The future of work means working from wherever we want, whenever we want. In this talk we will delve into the new era of remote culture without borders; revolving around transparency, values, and innovation. By sharing challenges and solutions for a thriving remote work culture, we hope to inspire other companies to embrace the future of work.
