Work Disrupted

The pandemic has been a catalyst of re-shaping and re-thinking a 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?

Expert Panel Work Disrupted

The purpose of the office has changed. Hybrid Working is the term on everyone's lips but for many, big questions remain unanswered; How do you bring the workforce back into the office? and What should that office look like? Creating a truly effective workplace has always required a perfect balance between people, place and technology. Given this most recent and dramatic global shift in the way we work, how do we now best drive communication, motivation, engagement with the right facilities, tech, tools to work, think and collaborate.

The Game Changed; How Do We Help Employees Change With It?

The pandemic changed the game for when, where and how work is accomplished. Reimagined workplaces must support employees’ work, social engagement, physical wellbeing, and emotional health. But that’s only part of the equation. Managing the change is another critical component. How can companies proactively address change while enhancing culture and building employee loyalty?
