For employers and employees, Q2 means a series of tentative steps out of self-preservation and into new ways of working. Innovation is much discussed. Employers have taken turns to announce plans for their version of hybrid working with difference emphases on office, remote, hub-based or blended work patterns.
Meanwhile, as we experiment with new normals, the summer holidays loom large and working parents face the annual juggle. Employers have been much more involved in care provision and also in supporting wellbeing and mental health.
In this lively discussion, senior leaders from Bright Horizons share lived experience from working with over 300 of the UK’s leading employers to support work and family. Their client partnerships span top law firms and banks through to tech giants, NHS and fast-moving consumer goods.
Through their just-launched research and their day-to-day conversations they have granular insights into what works and what’s next. Join us to hear from these leading thinkers as we discuss the trends. Has work-life balance taken on a whole new meaning? Will employers continue to play a strong role in enabling ‘life’ through benefits, programmes and greater choice? Or will remote working deliver an always-on, work-first culture?
