Speaker: Steve Herbert, Head of Benefits Strategy, Howden Employee Benefits & Wellbeing
Millions of British workers have experienced remote working in the last two years, and as the pandemic subsides many employees, and quite a few employers, wish to continue with home, hybrid, and flexible working for the foreseeable future.
But, what are the ramifications from an HR perspective?
Whether we are fans of it or not, hybrid working is here to stay and the ever-popular Steve Herbert will be providing us with an objective and engaging overview of some of the key issues that need to be considered by those of us working in HR.
In his practical, perceptive and often quite humorous way, Steve will open up lines of thought around situations that many companies will not as yet have encountered as they continue to strive for the ideal office/remote-working balance with employees.
Ultimately, is hybrid working good or bad news for employee engagement, worker wellbeing, employer productivity, and that all-important bottom line?
And where does the employer’s duty of care for workers begin and end in this brave new working world?
This promises to be a thought-provoking session that will offer much food-for-thought around (what some companies are now perceiving this new working ‘norm’ to be) a rather thorny issue.
