Webinar | Southeast Asia: Employment challenges and opportunities in a new era of retail banking

The past decade has seen a rapid transformation in the retail banking sector across Southeast Asia. Increased mobile penetration and a push towards digitalization are driving fundamental change in how banking services are accessed. Financial institutions must adapt their workforces to meet these new demands – a task which is complicated by prolonged Covid restrictions in many countries.

While there is no one-size-fits-all solution, organisations can still consider a uniform approach across the region. Join our panel of employment law experts from around the region for a discussion on how businesses can address the challenges, including through:
- Retrenchment
- Reskilling or upskilling
- Global mobility and remote working

Join for an insightful and perspective based conversation fro different jurisdictions.
