Workforce of the Future: The New Norm
In this forward-looking webinar, Pragmatic Futurist and keynote speaker Andrew Grill and Royds Withy King’s head of Employment & HR Malcolm Gregory discussed how the UK’s workforce and workspaces are likely to change over the coming years and how the legal landscape will need to adapt to any new realities.
The themes Andrew and Malcolm explored included:
Decade Ahead 2.0. At our Decade Ahead event in January 2020, Andrew spoke about the next ten years; since then, five years’ worth of workplace innovation happened in just a few weeks. As the world of work is being re-shaped, Andrew and Malcolm will discuss where we are headed next and what it will take to tackle future challenges.
The current challenges. There already is a palpable shift in how employers and employees approach work. We’ll discuss flexible working post Covid-19; the furlough scheme; what has and hasn’t worked, new issues that have emerged and the legal ramifications for employers.
The immediate future challenges: what are the next 18 months likely to bring? The big themes to emerge such as remote employee management and productivity, security challenges, shifting working patterns and the effect on organisational culture.
