Digital jobs and Safe Work Environments: Technology’s Role during COVID-19 and Beyond


June 11, 2020
11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Our workplaces are undergoing unprecedented challenges.  One thing has become abundantly clear:  any organization able to transition its mission or production to remote work is more resilient.  They enjoy these significant benefits: Work gets done, workers remain safe, fewer workers apply for unemployment and they use less sick time.

Now, as workplaces, retails spaces, and restaurants reopen, managers are asking the question:  Can technology help me keep workers and customers safer?
Join The Minnesota Technology Association on Thursday June 11th to learn how technology can play an impressive role in promoting safe environments and help businesses remain open. Minnesota IoT and technology companies that supply responsive technology and services will also learn about new opportunities–here and abroad.

*Easy-to-follow examples of how it can work
*Overview of types of tasks that can be converted to remote-capable
*Technology’s role in promoting safe work environments
*Resources for next steps
*For Minnesota IoT technology companies:  intro to opportunities in international markets
Agenda:  After an overview of this transition from MTO Regional Trade Manager Steve Riedel, you’ll hear from private sector experts:
