“These are challenging times for everyone”
We know it’s one of the most used cliches of the past few months, but sadly, it’s true. These have been and are challenging times.
Not only for us as individuals but also for businesses and their employees. Which, has caused some substantial changes to working practices, business stability and job security. Which, in turn, has affected the workplace. New skill sets and behaviours are required to meet the new continuum.
To understand how organisations and their employees can take control and share their own future, I was joined by Rebecca Birs, Head of Resourcing Talent and Inclusion at GDS. James Dalton, Head of Learning Engagement at PeopleStory. And Andrew Platt-Higgins, Employment and Strategic Communications at PeopleStory.
If you didn’t get a change to catch the webinar live, you can now re-watch it on demand.
In the open panel discussion, we cover:
- Is your working culture and employment brand promise what you thought it was?
- How do you engage, enable and empower your people to live the company purpose (especially if many of them are working remotely)?
- Through which mediums do you communicate these changes inclusively and persuasively?
- How do you deliver a consistent positive employee experience as we move forward?
The session runs for around 45 minutes, with a Q&A at the end.
