Zoom Interactive Event: Trust in the Workplace
29 July 2020
2:00 - 3:00pm BST
In the wake of the financial crisis of 2008 and the subsequent recession, Prof. Veronica Hope-Hailey from the University of Bath, conducted research within 25 different public and private sector organisations on how they either maintained or repaired trust in the face of redundancy programmes, restructuring, nationalisation and retrenchment. Reflecting on the practical lessons learnt from those studies (2011/12, 2014), Veronica will consider what can be applied right now to the different stages of business restart, recovery or recession.
However, Veronica will also reflect on what new challenges organisations will face in seeking to rebuild and recover from this current crisis. In particular Veronica will set out what she has learnt from ongoing research in 2020 conducted at director level. Talking with a range of senior leaders, Veronica is discovering how they are seeking to balance the need to ensure a sustainable economic recovery with a renewed focus on justice and fairness for employees as well as delivering to the common good in society.
