PODCAST

High-growth companies and the remote workforce

Explore practical ways high-growth companies and their boards can approach remote work, mental health and burnout.

A Privately Speaking podcast from KPMG Private Enterprise

Podcast overview

In 2020, when many companies transitioned to remote work, high-growth companies—bolstered by agile teams and a “fail fast” culture—seemed to find a natural way of embracing remote work. Nine months later, while they’ve experienced both efficiencies and benefits, there are also unique challenges. 

In this inaugural episode of the Privately Speaking podcast series, KPMG Audit partner and host Erika Whitmore sat down with Stephen Brown of the KPMG Board Leadership Center to discuss:

  • why companies will likely need to rethink their remote policies after the pandemic is over
  • practical ways companies can respond to mental health and burnout amongst their employees
  • why it may be more important than ever for leadership teams to model work life balance
  • and the integral role boards and advisors play.
