While the year of 2020 normalised flexibility in many workplaces, teams are now adjusting to another ‘new normal’ in hybrid work arrangements. According to research published in PwC’s ‘Changing Places’ report, 76 percent of Australian respondents would like either wholly virtual work, mostly virtual work, or a mix of face-to-face and virtual work. And since the pandemic began, 51 percent of managers said their direct reports have been more productive while working remotely.
In honour of Flexible Working Day, our next LIVE coaching on June 4 will explore how we can accelerate gender equality through workplace flexibility as we navigate the post-pandemic work culture. We will also cover how leaders can build trust and accountability in their teams to build on the flexible work arrangements that may have been normalised during the pandemic. We know that an empowered flex culture is one that extends beyond ‘hardwiring’ - such as policies and processes - and focuses instead on ‘soft wiring’, which includes role modelling, accountability, collaboration and trust.
Grace Papers founder and CEO, Prue Gilbert, will be joined by Head of People and Culture at Energy Australia, Jodi Haydon, Deputy Secretary of People and Operations at the NSW Department of Premier and Cabinet, Samara Dobbins, and Grace Papers' Head of Flexibility and Coaching, Amanda Meehan. A live Q&A will run at the end of the event.
