We will discuss the impact of home working on organisational culture, people strategies and duty of care plus look at the implications for quality of life and wellbeing and on the productivity and effectiveness of work.

Workplace experts will discuss the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, its climate change agenda and the global ‘Net Zero’ commitments for organisations and their workplaces; and the role of technology will play in reducing wasted space and CO2 emissions.

Our panel discussion will focus on how technology can be the forefront and centre of workplace strategies designed to address employee concerns over infection control measures and address the ramifications of Covid in relation to cleaning and sanitisation.
