NewHybrid Working & Personalisation of Work Pilot
This pilot session of the full course will support organisations and teams to reflect on, and reframe, how they structure and design the next stage of working in ways that meet and maximise opportunities for individuals, teams and the organisation.
Rob Baker and Perry Timms - authors, lecturers, consulting advisers and speakers - provide practical evidence and ideas on designing and co-creating roles, routines and systems of work that focus on wellbeing, performance and choice.
It’s not “back to normal” it’s not even a “new normal” - it’s our chance to continually evolve work, fit for humans in the 21st Century.
What employees want, what employers want. But for the first time, an appreciation of the value of working together is shared. It’s an opportunity we must take.
But how do we transition from a world where work was planned around being in the same place at the same time to one in which place and time vary?
We’re now facing formalising – by design – what often previously were loose, informal arrangements, into a HYBRID WORKING structure. This means taking the best of the pre-Covid word, the learning from the Covid era, and building in leading new thinking to shape the future of work.
How do we enable people to thrive rather than survive when we move to hybrid and blended approaches to working. There will be no one size fits all when it comes to new ways of working.
The secret is to get personal.
As a society and in business, people embrace opportunities for the personalisation of products and services. We enjoy and value having our own individual style, beliefs and passions reflected in what we do and how we do it.
Now more than ever is the time to encourage people to reflect on how, why, where and when they do their best work and can make the best contribution to their colleagues and their organisation.
So how can we bring this personal touch to our work? The answer lies in Job Crafting.
What if we encouraged people to customise their work the way a tailor would the final fit of a semi-tailored suit? What if we started to shape work around people rather than expecting people to constantly contort themselves around their jobs? What if we took a more personalised approach?
The session will be filled with practical job crafting strategies, studies and stories, based on the latest science, combined with the author’s extensive research and applied experience.
People and Operational leaders (in HR and beyond) looking to support their teams and organisations to maximise hybrid and blended working opportunities that benefits individuals, teams and organisations.
The sessions will be highly interactive and engaging blending breakout sessions, whiteboards and presentations.
This is a condensed masterclass that provides an overview of two important topics that we provide standalone sessions on.
