Better Together: Rebuilding The Workforce Of The Future
Produced by PLATF9RM
Thursday 12th November | 3:30 – 4:45pm
For many companies and employers, the future of their workforce is unclear. Whether they are considering redundancies, longer periods of remote working or utilising new government initiatives, the weight of decision making can feel vast and overwhelming for any employer.
In this webinar, we discuss the best ways to manage remote teams to ensure you’re taking care of your team’s wellbeing, how to engage with a workforce looking for more flexibility and agility, and understanding the legal implications of what working from home can bring for the employer.
We also look into how the crisis has affected young people, and what can be done to help as well as taking a look at the new government incentives to employ younger workers, the benefits of taking on apprentices and how these schemes could help your business.
