About the event
The last year has seen the world of work turned upside-down. Thankfully, it’s starting to feel as if normality, if not quite here, is just around the corner. What will the ‘new normal’ look like? We’ve learned a vast amount over the pandemic. Old stereotypes have been shattered and new possibilities revealed. How do we make the most of these opportunities?
We’re delighted to have two fantastic speakers. HR specialist Vanessa Forster will share her research findings on the ways companies around the world are adapting to the new work trichotomy – remote, office and hybrid.
Dr Wendy Ross will address some of the valuable aspects of team working that can be lost in a remote-working environment, drawing on her research in serendipity to consider ways of encouraging those chance corridor encounters in a world with no corridors.About the speakers
