Dynamic workforces: workforce wonders - unlocking the secrets to a healthy, happy team

3 December 2020

This webinar took place on Thursday 03 December 2020 and is now available on-demand. Please register or click "already registered" if you've registered previously.

Join us as we explore the secrets of developing a healthier, happier workforce – no mean feat in these challenging times!

We look at life pre-Covid and reflect upon the typical workforce dynamics at play - productivity, stress, flexibility, wellbeing. Have these things improved during the pandemic, and how have we adapted to ensure that our people are resilient, ambitious and happy?

Our expert speakers consider the practical and legal implications of the challenges we face now, and those which undoubtedly lie ahead. We are delighted to welcome Claire Campbell from Timewise who discusses the benefits of flexible and agile working. Claire explores what has worked well during the pandemic, and where we can learn from the misinterpretation of what ‘flexible’ working really entails. Her insights inspire employers to think differently and feel confident about embracing changes.

Our HR, regulatory and insurance law specialists discuss areas of risk which may go overlooked or indeed be exacerbated by these new ways of working, including health and safety, employers liability and work related claims. Together we consider the all-important balancing act of continuing to work through the pandemic with effective productivity, connectivity and flexibility, alongside that of our workforces falling victim to increasingly high expectations and the ‘always on culture’.
