The New World of Work: Challenges & Emerging Trends

The pandemic has been a catalyst of re-shaping and re-thinkinga new world of work. We examine what’s on the horizon for the future of work, looking at how business leaders should respond and what should they prioritise in the months ahead?

Hybrid Offices: The Future of Working Environments

Nothing will be like before". We have been reading and hearing this observation for several months now, in the press, the media, and news... But what does this mean for the office and business? The most striking phenomenon over the last 18 months is the acceleration of remote working. Physical environments have become more essential than ever and must embody the DNA of the company and its values to create a safe space for employees to collaborate and learn.

Leading Effective Remote Teams

The Covid-19 pandemic has spawned huge interest in hybrid modes of working and along with it, remote teams. Although not a new phenomenon, the increased scale has presented a unique opportunity for leaders to create new team cohesion, dynamics, engagement, and empowerment in their teams. Patrick has observed in very effective remote teams that relationship quality is the most important factor and will share key questions to help business leaders navigate and manage their teams in the new world of work.

Workplace Experience

Companies are accelerating plans to invest in new technology, create flexible working environments and make the office a destination. We will examine the latest workplace technologies and innovations that will support workplace experience and the built environment in 2021 and beyond.

Sound Ideas: Aligning Acoustics and Productivity for the New World of Work

Flexible new ways of working have opened a wealth of opportunities for organisations to reimagine how their workplace could meet the workforce demands. Whilst an exciting and unique moment for companies looking to create a more agile and resilient approach to the future of work, it does not come without its challenges. This session will discuss a report on What Will The Post Covid-19 Workplace Sound Like? exploring the parameters of workplace performance and how acoustics and productivity can be enhanced for the ‘work anywhere’ workforce.
