The dramatic changes brought to our working world by the Covid-19 crisis led to an overnight increase in remote working. However, as we transition into a new era of work, rather than returning to ‘9-5’ office-based work, remote work is looking likely to become far more common. After all, in the last few months, employers and professionals have realised that many traditionally office-based...

The global COVID-19 crisis has completely changed our lives, impacting our daily routines, the way in which we connect with people, our livelihoods and much more, which can lead to feelings of insecurity and uncertainty. As restrictions have been relaxed in several countries, business professionals may have been required to return to the workplace or are expected to in the near future, which...

The global COVID-19 pandemic is set to change how and where we will operate in the next era of work, potentially for good, and as restrictions are gradually starting to be relaxed in several countries, business leaders who haven’t already, are now planning how they can safely enable their employees to return to the workplace, whilst helping to manage any anxieties they may have and ultimately...

Like everything else about this year, Pride 2020 will be different. Typically, in cities across the UK and Ireland, millions of people use Pride to congregate and show their support and solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community. Whilst the Covid-19 pandemic will move 2020’s celebrations online, it’s vital that we continue in our commitment to making progressive strides forward. No lockdown on...

The COVID-19 crisis has brought sweeping change to so many aspects of our lives - where we work being one of them. Some of these changes will be permanent. Indeed, many organisations have found that having a greater number of their employees based at home has worked out well for all parties. As a result, some employers have decided to shift completely to remote working for good, while others...

Conducting job interviews remotely is set to become commonplace as we enter the next era of work. But how can you replicate that ‘feeling’ candidates get for your organisation when they interview with you in-person, if they are just staring into a screen, devoid of the sensory overload they would experience during a face-to-face interview? How can a potential employee truly get an...

As a phased return to the workplace begins to become a reality for many of us, you’ll find the workplace you’re returning to is very different from the one you left. For some, the rapid move to remote working may have been a big adjustment, but transitioning back could be an even greater challenge. To begin with, adherence to social distancing will see your former workplace layout replaced...

As governments around the world slowly start to ease lockdown restrictions, for many leaders, focus is now firmly on how to return to growth when operating with backdrop of uncertainty and unease. This is a monumental challenge, but we can rise to it if we utilise our organisation’s most valuable asset – our people. Post-COVID, people will be the key to driving your organisation’s growth ...

How ‘visible’ do you really feel at work right now, having potentially not seen your managers and colleagues in months, unless via virtual contact? Whether you’ve continued to go into work or are now based remotely, the world of work has changed for us all and that’s posed challenges for many employees trying staying visible and noticed. Findings from over 16,000 respondents in the Hays...

To categorise the last 12 months as ‘stressful’ would be an understatement. Some have been ‘shielding’, separated from their friends and loved ones. Some have been placed on furlough whilst others have seen an increase in their normal day-to-day workload. It’s likely that every one of us has struggled – at least to some degree – with the phenomenal changes wrought by coronavirus on our usual...
