Our latest publication on remote work-integrated learning experiences from the student perspective is highlighted in Waterloo Stories.

Work-Learn Institute's director Judene Pretti was featured in a recent article by HRD Magazine discussing the impact of COVID-19 on recruitment. 

“I think COVID has given us the opportunity to challenge assumptions about the way we work and how employees and organizations adapt to change,” she explained. “While it hasn’t been an easy transition for most, it is remarkable to look at the ways that work has changed in the past five months and what we have learned along the way."
