Public Sector HR Conference - Session 1
Leadership, ethics and culture in the post-COVID workplace
What will be the long-term impact of the COVID-pandemic on workplace culture? What lessons have leaders learned? COVID forced workplaces to change rapidly giving workers and employers little time to consider the possible disadvantages of remote workplaces..
Ita Buttrose will explore some of the challenges facing workplace leaders including whether anyone can really predict the future of work. She will also examine how an organisation maintains an ethical culture if the workplace is still facing disruption, many workers are opting not to return to the office and trust between managers and workers alike has eroded.
