What will expectations of work and employment be in the post-lockdown period?
The webinar will attempt to respond this question by concentrating on three key areas:
- The use of technology in working patterns following the lockdown and upon return to normality
- Regulation of the labour market, including furloughed employees, employees working short hours and those working from home, as well as employees who will go back to work and others concerned with restructuring/redundancies
- Lack of available data that could potentially elucidate the state, employers and employees on the scale of actual losses and the currents state of the labour market.
There will also be the opportunity to take part in the discussion, sharing your views on the issues currently affecting business leaders today.
