Navigating The New Working World
Such uncertain times means our approach to work has entered uncharted territory. The Chief Human Resource Officer (CHRO) and Human Resource Director (HRD) has to help negotiate what is likely to be the fastest and most significant change of the workforce in our lifetimes. HR has had to be ahead of the rest of the organisation, ensuring that it can meet the practical and wellbeing needs of employees, adapting fast to keep the business running as close to normal as possible. Here, building trust through transparency and leadership is critical.
This new working world demands new levels of flexibility, visibility, and collaboration in the short-term. However, CHROs and HRDs must also consider where there could be long-term, even permanent realignment.
- How are HR leaders supporting people and the business through this change?
- Will any of these measures remain as positive long-term solutions?
- How can HR leaders prepare the workforce to develop new skills they will need going forward?
- What opportunities could this new approach mean for diversity, training, creativity, and innovation?
Hosted by Cathy Temple, who has held senior HR positions since 2000, this virtual roundtable event aims to answer these questions and offer practical advice on how HR leaders are navigating this new world.
