Change is non-negotiable. Evolution is everything

#WorkingWorld

Our work environments are changing, and fast. But how do you keep pace with change, manage your people and your business as we look to an uncertain future?

Rapid transformation is everywhere. Technology, demographic shifts, the global pandemic, environmental issues and the changing needs of consumers and clients is having a profound impact on the way businesses operate.

Our working world has morphed immeasurably over the last decade and, thanks to the pandemic, changes may be fast tracked to quickly become permanent. This presents a unique opportunity – to evolve our workplace, our workforce and the way we interact, physically and virtually.

What can we expect?

With technology readily accepted into our everyday lives, shared or ‘third’ work spaces encouraging collaboration and stronger community values increasingly commonplace and, now, the rapid acceleration of homeworking, we are experiencing a blurring of work and life none of us expected to see so quickly. Cultural shifts are also being stimulated by the next generation of workers, employee attraction, motivation and retention is more important than ever before and the traditional 9 to 5 is almost non-existent in many sectors.

But how is this impacting our businesses, how we manage employees and our individual wellbeing and mental health? And what might be around the corner?

Whilst it is incredibly difficult to forecast the future, exploring and assessing our current environments – what works, what doesn’t and what needs to change – can help us make predictions about what the future might look like, and how we can adapt.

How can we help?

We work at the intersection of employment law, business, culture and technology. Our aim is to explain the impact of our modern world on traditional law, assessing the opportunities and challenges for us all in our present and future working world.

Whether you are a business leader, employer or employee, we will highlight the key issues that affect everyone in the modern workplace so you are as prepared and protected as possible.
