About this Event
Shaping the post-pandemic future of work
2020 has demanded more agility from UK businesses than any other time in modern working history.
As the pandemic has progressed it has become clearer that a new industrial revolution is emerging, bringing with it opportunities and challenges in seemingly equal measure. As organisations across the country accelerate plans to develop and engage a more flexible, responsive and resilient workforce, the Flexpo team has supported hundreds of organisations throughout the pandemic through the changing landscape of work.
In this session the Flexpo team will share their experiences of working with people leaders and teams across organisations of all sizes and types as they have embraced smart and flexible ways of working, illustrating what's working now to help you as you shape the future of work within your business.
You'll learn how to:
• Lead and support your teams responsively beyond the COVID-19 crisis, enhancing communication and maintaining high performance
• Leverage the lessons gifted to your workforce as a result of the pandemic and equip and empower teams to design a collaborative approach to shaping the future of work that's right for everyone in your workforce
• Increase engagement, enhance the wellbeing of your people and reduce sickness absence
• Simplify the management of the logistics of people working different hours and patterns and effectively plan ahead
• Meet your customers' needs and uphold exceptional service levels
• Ensure your people have equal access to training and professional development while working in flexible ways
CEO, speaker, consultant and activist
Ursula Tavender is founder of Taking Care of Business and MumbelievableTM and co-director of Flexpo Ltd.
Following a successful career in corporate communications, Ursula founded her first business in 2015 with the mission to change the world of work by helping companies become more flexible, inclusive and close pay gaps. She is building companies that complement the brilliant campaigns for social, societal and business change by challenging and enabling organisations to think and act differently, make bold decisions and lead the way in their sector with impactful change to flexible working culture, behaviours and mindsets.
Ursula has found a strong sense of purpose in innovating solutions and developing tools that support people - regardless of their circumstances or working pattern - to stay and progress at work, increase flexible working opportunities for everyone and strengthen the female talent pipeline.
In March 2020 Ursula co-authored a guide with Liese Lord to support UK businesses making the emergency move to en-masse remote working that has since become a trusted resource for thousands of organisations and employees as they navigate the working world created by COVID-19.
She also participates in a number of influential government groups and regularly writes, speaks, comments and campaigns for business change on the issues of closing the gender pay gap, flexible working and the future of work in a post-pandemic world.
