In a hybrid-remote scenario, a subset of the company commutes each day, paired with a subset of the company that works remotely. This scenario offers complexity to managing individuals, teams, office dynamics and the product itself.
In this talk Kay will discuss InnoGames’ culture prior to the pandemic, how it developed when transitioning to remote work, and plans for building a hybrid model using an adaptive approach moving forward. All this to achieve InnoGames’ goal of creating the best working model.

Moderated by Hannah Chaplin, this session will provide new insights and tips on how they manage stakeholders.
