We will spend 80000 hours at work. Yet most of us don’t feel comfortable or equipped to start a conversation with our people about their career or their future. This gaping hole is the main reason talent leave good businesses.

What does the future world of work look like? How will our careers and working lives be transformed by the post-pandemic environment? What action do you need to take as a leader to ensure you win the war for talent and have a thriving working environment that is fit for the future?

The job for life is dead and we can work from anywhere, for anyone.
What does this mean for people functions and business leaders?

The Career Equation: Democratising Your Career & Talent Strategy

The working environment has seen fundamental shifts post pandemic. As we start to explore how to return to the office, it is clear that the spaces we work in and the tech we use have changed immensely. Employees want clarity about where they are expected to work and a rationale for why this is so. But one size doesn’t fit all.

In every crisis there is an opportunity.

How do you maximise productivity through hybrid working? How do we reconfigure the office to make the most of in-person interaction? This empowering session will help you lead your teams on an exciting redesign of work as we know it.

Optimising the Hybrid Working Environment

The Great Resignation and the war for talent are making it incredibly hard to secure and retain key people. Pressure on candidates is pushing up wage inflation across a huge range of industries. How do you become the company no one wants to leave and the leader everyone wants to work for? Getting under the skin of how your people and your candidates define success helps you create a feeling of genuine intimacy and solidarity and gives you a red flag warning for anyone being tempted by an external offer. Let me show you how to engage both prospective talent and be their employer of choice, as well as holding on to your very best people.
