Quick Summary Catch up on all the action from our Webinar on Hybrid Working, in partnership with the HRDirector.

In partnership with the HRDirector,  this webinar explores the lasting impacts of the sudden and dramatic change to the Global standard model of work practices & industry standardization i.e. office hours of 9am-5pm and ultimately – how we work.

All businesses in the last two years had to demonstrate a high degree of agility, open-mindedness and flexibility just to survive. Fully flexible working practices became the only way for businesses to functionally operate almost overnight, whether they liked it or not. Now that working from home and other flexible working arrangements have been embedded, we discuss the impacts/pros/cons and perspectives for each key stakeholder: The Employee/The Team/The Business/Their Customers/Clients and the wider talent market.
