The Future for people in work - Can new mean better?  

We’ve heard that work will fundamentally change as a result of Covid-19.  As we hear more about the “new normal” doing good business means shaping the agenda not waiting to see what happens.  In this session we look at the future of the workplace and what it might mean for businesses, people, and the wider fabric of our City and City Region.   The world is unpredictable so rather than trying to guess what might happen we’re going to explore what we’ve learned during the pandemic, what it might mean for the world of work, and how work could work better.
