Join our panel to discuss the significantly different way of working with our colleagues and clients and what the future might look like

About this Event

We started the conversation at the last Digital Festival as we started our new way of working remotely during lockdown.

As we continue to live through a pandemic, our panel reflect and regroup on how a company can prepare, as an organisation, to deal with the culture shift in the ways people will work in the future.

Our panelists will discuss the opportunities that will be arising in the future and how we find a more sustainable model of balance between remote and office working, now that we have disproven the old adage that people can’t be trusted to work from home.

Panel Moderator :

Sarah Tulip, Director at EY and Co-founder of WiLD

Panel Members:

Anna Sutton, CEO at The Data Shed

Becca Duncan, People and Change Consultant at BJSS

Svetlana Tarnagurskaja, Head of Delivery at BJSS (London)

Rachel Akili, Manager - People Advisory Services at EY

Topics we will address:

Overwhelming acceptance of working flexibility and our stories so far… / What’s good about both? Is the office a place for innovation?

Workplace inclusivity and diversity- for all people, disability, race at home or in the office?

Relationships and people; living and working at home, who should be at home and when?

Mental health:

o Finding a balance between work and home

o Finding a balance between working at the office with people (being social helps a lot of people, as does separation between work and home) and being at home (saving on commute time can mean more, better sleep, easier management of schedule and out of work responsibilities and enjoyment, possibly helping to prevent burnout)

- Returning to work

o It being easier to return to work after taking time off (parental leave, short/long term sick leave, being out of work for another reason)

o Will this change the makeup of the workforce, if more people are able to more easily return to work (as they won’t have cost of childcare, for example)

- Different abilities (disabilities)

o A home office can be more accessible for many (for those with conditions that mean they need amenities that an office may not easily fulfil)

o This may make it easier for those who are different abled to enter the workforce, if they do not face the challenges with travel to the office, and using a space that has not been made for them (offices) by working from home"
