VIM’s 2020 Webinar Recap

2020 Webinar Recap

The year 2020 left companies frantically struggling to move operations online as cities and countries around the world went into lockdown due to COVID-19. Most companies faced a major challenge – to help their employees adapt to new routines and technology, and to do so remotely. Businesses had to limit employee travels, postpone, and cancel in-person training and meetings. At VIM Technologies, we recognized that our customers cannot simply push the pause button on critical workplace learning while trying to put employee safety first. To meet this challenge and support our partners, we decided to develop and host free webinars starting in April 2020.

Here is a recap of all VIM webinars conducted in 2020. If you missed any of them and would like access to any of the recordings, here’s a list of previous webinars. Select the webinar(s) you’re interested and fill out the request form.
