As COVID-19 lockdowns and enforced home working continue for the foreseeable future, it is more important than ever people managers work with employees to actively support flexible ways of working. This webinar from flexible working experts Timewise, in partnership with Business in the Community (BITC), will explore how.

It seems unlikely that the workplace will return to pre-COVID-19 ways of operating, with many employees loath to accept a full-scale return to the office. Therefore it is critical employers future-proof any plans and practices put into place at this time. Flexible Working: Making it Work in a COVID-19 World is a Timewise webinar designed to help do exactly that.

During this webinar, we will explain how to

  • unlock the different ways your people could work during this time – from reduced hours and working in sprints to split shifts and job shares. 
  • identify the conversations people managers should be having with their teams right now – going way beyond any typical ‘remote working’ guidance.
  • avoid the potential pitfalls which risk setting back your diversity and inclusion agenda.
  • use the learnings from this time to help you shape a fairer, future-fit culture for the post-corona workplace.

It will be an interactive session with opportunities to hear from others, as well as asking questions.

Join us to hear examples of how other organisations have progressed their flexible working culture, and benefit from practical insight and tools to share with managers and employees.

This webinar forms part of Timewise’s A Fair Flexible Work Programme for Scotland, supported by The Scottish Government


This event is open to BITC members, with a limited number of spaces for non-members. It is designed to benefit business leaders, line managers, human resources and diversity and inclusion managers.
