This session will bring together members to discuss approaches to the post-pandemic workforce and the successful implementation of a hybrid working model.
Our latest research ‘Permanent Flexibility: Reimagining Remote Working Post-Covid’ found that the coronavirus pandemic has debunked many assumptions about the feasibility of hybrid remote working and has shown employers what is possible. As a result many are planning for a hybrid workforce post-Covid.
However, the new approach raises many fundamental questions:
- Are teams as productive remotely, and how can we monitor productivity?
- What are the leadership qualities required in a hybrid working environment?
- Will corporate cultures erode without face-to-face interaction, and does a hybrid environment provide the same opportunity for innovation?
- Will talent stagnate without opportunities for informal learning?
- What is the purpose of an office in a hybrid model?
- How do we monitor wellbeing in this new context?
This peer-exchange will explore these topics and their policy implications. It is suitable for all members interested in discussing further the policy considerations of a hybrid working model.
We will provide some initial commentary to start a discussion among members, enabling us to build a picture of how organisations’ approaches to reimagining the post-pandemic workforce are evolving.
