After over a year of change and adaptation, what will our workplaces look like in the new normal? As the Government continues to ease restrictions, business leaders must consider how the future will impact their workplace. More importantly, they must consider how it will impact their people.
For many businesses, the pandemic has accelerated workplace wellbeing initiatives and pushed through flexible working plans. It has highlighted the advantages and limitations of traditional workplaces and created divisions by sector and working style. With the workforce divided, how can businesses move forward to create modern and adaptable environments which enable their people to thrive?
We asked 1,500 people across the UK about their future work plans and wellbeing needs. We set out to understand how the workforce is feeling and what businesses can do to help them adapt.
The report explores what to expect from the new normal, how the return to work might differ across sectors and the impact of the right support on wellbeing, engagement and productivity.
