Organisation Development, Culture and Change

Video: The Realities of the New Working Environment

  • May 17, 2022

The coronavirus pandemic 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, this event was an opportunity to take stock of how the new cultures of work are and have embedded.

Building on CRF’s 2021 research which examined the future of work and impact of the pandemic, this event and associated research update examined what the new context means for performance, culture, people strategy and learning. We examined the strategies that organisations are adopting to implement new ways of working in response to these factors. We explored hybrid working: are the strategies effective and how are organisations resolving the challenges and compromises inherent to these new working models?

The comprehensive Post Meeting Notes summarise.

The event focused on sharing practical insights and learning from the experiences of other organisations via a number of case studies, and videos from their sessions follow.
