Event Description:

The Coronavirus pandemic precipitated seismic shifts in the way we all live and work. For many, this included a rapid adjustment to remote and flexible working, and for managers, a rapid adjustment to managing remote and flexibly working teams.

A recent survey by CIPD found that three-quarters of employers believe that the demand for flexible working among employees will increase once lockdown measures have been lifted.

CIPD advise that organisations will have to improve how they support and manage staff working from home and flexibly in other ways if they are going to get the best out of them. Line managers will have to become more comfortable in managing performance based on outcomes rather than the time people spend in the physical workplace.

Join this webinar to explore how you can do so, to make sure you are effectively managing truly flexible teams.

 

The University of Birmingham’s Work Inclusivity Research Centre (WIRC) is a dynamic community of researchers and partners who are committed to the critically engaged study of issues of equality, diversity and inclusion in employment, and who are guided by principles of social justice. WIRC is based within Birmingham Business School but includes colleagues from across disciplines such as sociology, economics, industrial relations, and psychology. WIRC is made up of six work streams, Diversity and Inclusivity within Organisations; Inclusivity in Education; Inclusive Labour Governance and Employee Voice; Trust; Labour Market Inequalities and Disadvantages; and Wellbeing in the Workplace.
