Shaping the post-Covid World of Work – HR’s Big Opportunity
Shaping the post-Covid World of Work – HR’s Big Opportunity | 19th May | 11:30-13:00 (CET)
“The Future is not quite what it used to be”. Disruption and change in the world of work were already well underway before the onset of the Covid pandemic. However, we now face a once in a generation opportunity (particularly in HR) to re-set our working models and norms and to accelerate the best of what we want to see a change in the future of work and working life.
Kevin and his team of international partners have been supporting organisations and leaders work through and plan what their “Future of Work” and Hybrid work models will look like in practical reality – and what is needed to prepare their organisations, leaders and employees for the future over the coming months. During the session he will share the lessons learned from this work to date and will provide participants with a four phase framework to scope and plan their work programmes towards building a productive, agile and engaging work model and environment for the future.
Every successful change needs a spark, a reason, and a context that connects emotionally as well as rationally with individuals and leaders. The practical and imminent need that now presents itself to re-set our post-Covid ways of working provides us with that spark to shape our future of work. Individuals and leaders have never been (at the same time) so individually engaged, alert, and invested in shaping what that new world of work will now look like for them and their organizations. In going through the practical task of designing what a new blended model of work and a new definition of the workplace will now look like, we also have the opportunity to create how that new work model and employee experience will be in reality. Self-organisation, distributed and authentic leadership, trust & psychological safety, flexibility in how and where we work, a new employment deal, personal resilience and agility – these are just some of the principles and values that we now have the opportunity to amplify, develop and integrate into the new world of work that we all want to see.
