The Realities of the New Working Environment

  • Hybrid Events
  • May 10, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm UTC+1
  • London, United Kingdom

In-Person: 09.00 – 16.00 BST / Online: 9.00 – 11.30 BST

The coronavirus pandemic has compressed several years’ worth of change to organisation cultures and working practices into a matter of months. As the ‘new world of work’ moves from being a future issue to being the present for global businesses, we will take stock of how the new cultures of work are embedding.

Building on CRF’s 2021 research which examined the future of work and impact of the pandemic across multiple angles, this event and associated research update will examine what the new context means for performance, culture, people strategy and learning. We will examine the strategies that organisations are adopting to implement new ways of working in response to these factors. We will explore hybrid working: are strategies effective and how are organisations resolving the challenges and compromises inherent to the new working models? The session will focus on sharing practical insights and learning from the experiences of other organisations.

Learning Objectives:

  • Take stock of what’s working, what’s not working and what’s still to do in terms of embedding learning from the pandemic and preparing for the future of work.
  • Compare your organisation’s approach to others’ and gain insights from discussions with peers.

Consider implications for HR policy and develop action plans around multiple aspects of people strategy.

Who is this Event for?

Senior HR generalists and OD, Change and Leadership and Learning specialists with responsibility for developing organisation culture and HR policies.
