Successfully bringing workers back to downtown

For a safe, progressive, flexible and attractive return. Events The speech will be delivered in French only.



Over the last number of months, numerous employers and managers in downtown Montréal have been preparing for the return of their employees by developing plans focused on safety and flexibility. Meanwhile, in the face of a fourth wave, Public Health has recommended that workers postpone their return to the office until October.

The evolving situation makes it even more important for employers to carefully consider and prepare their office reopenings. That is the backdrop against which we have mobilized to help bring workers back to the workplace, so that everyone can once again say "I love working downtown!"

Take part in this CCMM event, organized in partnership with the Québec government and Ville de Montréal, to get the tools your business and managers need to organize a successful return to the office.
