CIPD Festival of Work

Our Chief Executive, Paul Hamer, will take part in a panel session to discuss the future of flexible working.

We have been actively championing flexible working for everyone, not just those in the construction industry, because we believe it creates a happier workforce and supports a more inclusive culture.  

Our Chief Executive, Paul Hamer, will be joined by the Co-CEO of GlobalGiving, Alex Ritchie, and Rachel Suff, Senior Policy Adviser at CIPD, to discuss "How flexible  working will reshape the world of work." 

Topics they will be discussing include how to create a culture of flexible and agile working to improve the wellbeing of employees, which, in turn, helps recruitment and the retention of critical talent. The panel will also be looking at how flexible working can impact productivity and engagement, and how this data might inform decision making around the future of flexible working. They will also consider whether market forces are likely to lead to total flexibility or see more people back to the office, a hot topic in the media as politicians push for the working from home era to cease and bring back people to cities.
