It’s been a heck of a year in business building and operations. Where do we go next?

That’ll be the theme of BuildingUp, a new quarterly webinar series we at are launching. It’ll hit on a recurring theme of ours: How do we build better workplaces?

Next Wednesday, Feb. 24, is the series debut, with a live conversation around our soon-to-be-released 2021 Hiring and Workplace Culture Trends Report. The report and webinar series (like our new weekly Culture Builder newsletter) rely heavily on the reporting our newsroom does across the mid-Atlantic, in addition to what we’re hearing from our client base of hundreds of growing tech teams.

Join Technically Media CEO and cofounder Chris Wink in discussion with HR and workplace culture professionals as they dive into the topics and learnings that will be revealed in our inaugural report. Attendees will gain actionable takeaways on what HR leaders and others in similar roles should be thinking about for 2021 and beyond.

It’s all happening 11 a.m. to noon EST on the 24th.
