“Your future is whatever you make it. So make it a good one.”
Emmett ‘Doc’ Brown, Back To The Future III
Returning to a sense of normality after the past 15 months is on everybody’s mind: from how we act and behave in society, the sense of what we have lost and what we will regain, and what the workplace will look like going forward. Of course, for some employees – such as those who work for a supermarket, or delivery drivers, or who work for the fire service – the world of work never totally changed throughout the pandemic. But for many, working from home has become the norm for over a year.
One of a small number of positives from the pandemic is that it’s provided organisations with the opportunity to reset the world of work, probably the greatest chance to do so in over a century.
As we return to a working environment closer to what we had in 2019, what are the opportunities that organisations need to grasp, and what do we need to do to stop us slipping back towards old habits? This Discovery session will explore some pressing questions that have emerged from listening to our own clients and to the hundreds of organisations who attend our events:
- How do we need to lead our organisations as the pandemic subsides?
- What do employees want from organisations, and what are their priorities?
- What does hybrid working look like and what really is flexible working?
- What skills and behaviours do ‘people managers’ need to develop to manage in the future work environment
- How do we navigate the shift towards being more human organisations?
- How do we retain and build on the agility and innovation developed during the pandemic so that we don’t slip back into old ways?
Led by our Head of Culture and Change Ian Barrow, and Consultant Director Kathryn Willoughby, the session will be particularly relevant to organisations currently exploring or rethinking what their world of work will look like post-lockdown, and will provide an opportunity for attendees to share their own views with a group of like-minded professionals.
Between them, Ian and Kathryn have over 40 years’ experience working with global organisations on culture change, internal communications and employee engagement and experience. They have a passion for transforming organisations into more inspiring and effective places to work.
