Webinar

Advanced Workforce Leadership Series 2021

The extreme pressure on the UK workforce over the last 18 months has completely shifted the way we work and left both organisations and individuals reflecting on what it truly means to be resilient.

Organisations have not only had to pivot their businesses but also flex their leadership and management styles to support their teams, both in terms of delivering the right tools and technology, and also in providing virtual coaching, mentoring and support.

As the country gradually 'adopts a new normal' and reflects on some of the positive learnings of the pandemic, it’s clear that many organisations will adapt a ‘hybrid’ approach to work.

This panel discussion looks to explore some of the issues HR professionals are facing as they lead company strategies on the future of work.
