In this interactive discussion hosted by people engagement specialists, Hive HR & Jostle we explore the evolution of the HR and employee engagement space as we embrace a forever-changing world.

For decades we've talked about how to tackle high levels of disengagement and the productivity gap across the world, with more flexible working top of many employees' wishlists. So could we embrace this as an opportunity for change? Already, we have almost single-handedly been ushered into a new, more flexible way of working, and hugely challenged traditional (and often outdated) 9–5 mindsets. But why has it taken a global pandemic for some leaders to face their fears and give their people more freedom?

And now that lockdown has eased, why are some organisations looking to revert to how they worked in the pre-Covid world, rather than seeing this as an opportunity to create a better, more engaging future of work? And exactly how do we all go about doing just that and fully embracing the ‘new normal’?

If we're going to change work for good let's come together and discuss not only the challenges we face, but also what people need at work right now and how to adapt together.
