‘The New Normal’ - looking after your people | webinar

This webinar took place on 24th March 2021


There is a lot of debate around the term ‘The New Normal’ and what that actually means for the modern business as lockdown restrictions begin to ease again. Many employers and employees have their own ideas about what has changed forever and what will revert back to pre-Covid times.


What is for certain though is that homeworking is here to stay in one form or another...


Research from the CIPD shows UK employers expect that the proportion of people working from home on a regular basis once the crisis is over will increase to 37% compared to 18% before the pandemic.


Therefore, it’s becoming increasingly important to help your team feel connected.


With isolation, social distancing and stay at home mandates, it’s easy for individuals to start to feel disconnected and discouraged. Exactly one year on since the first lockdown began, in this webinar we explored how businesses can support the mental, emotional and physical wellbeing of their team. We were joined by two amazing guest speakers...
