We’re not going back. Implications for the workplace and workforce
Thursday 25 June, 18:00 – 19:00
The Covid-19 crisis has accelerated companies’ digital transformation and is revolutionising the workplace and workforce. The crisis de-risked workplace innovations which would have taken years to complete if it weren’t for the lockdown. Organisations and individuals alike have being positively surprised by the productivity, effectiveness and benefits of the largest work-from-home experiment in history, with some companies stating that employees can now “WFH” indefinitely.
In this webinar, we will discuss the implications and emerging thoughts on companies’ location strategy, recruitment and talent, management of virtual teams, emergence of collaboration tools as well as the impact to social bonds, work relationships and local communities that we can expect from the future of work. If we have time we’ll then delve into the risks that this new way of working may bring and their long-term sustainability.
