The Coronavirus pandemic precipitated seismic shifts in the way we all live and work. For many, this included aGreater Birmingham Chamber Logo rapid adjustment to remote and flexible working, and for managers, a rapid adjustment to managing remote and flexibly working teams.

A recent survey by CIPD found that three-quarters of employers believe that the demand for flexible working among employees will increase once lockdown measures have been lifted.

CIPD advise that organisations will have to improve how they support and manage staff working from home and flexibly in other ways if they are going to get the best out of them. Line managers will have to become more comfortable in managing performance based on outcomes rather than the time people spend in the physical workplace.

Join this webinar to explore how you can do so, to make sure you are effectively managing truly flexible teams.
