Returning to the workplace

With the coronavirus pandemic having heavily impacted the UK business landscape, and disrupting operations worldwide, many companies are still fighting to survive this crisis, whilst thinking about 'what next?'.

Join Matthew Fell (Chief UK Policy Director, CBI) for a political update, and hear key insights from our guest speakers Emma Holden (Global Head of Human Resources, Schroders), Rachel Jones (Director of Talent, Learning, Engagement and Organisational Design, Sodexo), and Stuart Wiggans (Senior Director for Operational Compliance, Asda) on returning to the workplace, including:

  • How to manage pinch points within workplaces, and create a staggered approach to the return to the workplace - from risk assessments, to social distancing rules
  • How business may need to adapt to a hybrid working model, and an overview of the government's new 'back to workplace' campaign
  • How firms should work with employees to gauge appetite, and inform plans for returning to the workplace with confidence.
