Catch up on our 'Future of workplace culture' webinar.
As businesses continue navigating the pandemic and conversations around the future of workplace culture take precedence, it's becoming increasingly important to consider your attitude to flexible working, and look at different ways of approaching communication and collaboration.
While some organisations have welcomed remote working with open arms, other employers have struggled to trust their employees to work autonomously with some even ramping up on surveillance to track exactly what their workforce is doing. This is quite troubling, when you look at the fact that 93% of Britains workforce say having an employer that trusts them is important for their overall happiness at work.
This stat came from our recent research report, which also uncovered that 86% of employees say working at a company with a strong ethical background is key, signalling some employers may need to rethink their strategies as they plan for the future.
During this event our panellists shared their insight and opinions on how you can future-proof the culture of your workplace.
