For employers and employees, Q2 means a series tentative steps out of self-preservation and into new ways of working. Innovation is much discussed. Employers have taken turns to announce plans for their version of hybrid working with difference emphases on office, remote, hub-based or blended work patterns.
Meanwhile, as we experiment with new normals, the summer holidays loom large and working parents face the annual juggle, weaving phases of professional life, with times of family fun and other phases of some kind of ‘holiday cover’.
Employers have been much more involved in care provision and also in supporting wellbeing and mental health. Has work-life balance taken on a whole new meaning? Will employers continue to play a strong role in enabling ‘life’ through benefits, programmes and greater choice? Or will remote working deliver an always-on work-first culture?
Join us for a lively discussion with leading employers and thinkers as we discuss what’s next in work-life balance.
