Really nice piece here from the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) exploring some of the ways individual behaviour and workplace culture as a result of Covid. This is written specifically through the lens of the financial services sector, but based on the Bionic Business research data we're in the throes of crunching, undoubtedly relevant to most of us: https://www.fca.org.uk/insight/conduct-culture-and-covid-19
Hi everyone - ahead of our roundtable discussion tomorrow, we're collating some insight from our community and attendees with regards to how people are managing the return to the workplace. If you have 5 mins to complete the survey for us, it would be HUGELY appreciated. We'll share the results here shortly after. The link to the survey is here: https://www.menti.com/zoaq4f692j. Thank you!
As we head towards the last quarter of the year (gulp), Many of community are focused on comms supporting the return to the workplace. I wondered what your comms priorities are for communicating the return to the office (or, are you ditching the office?!). Is it H&S? Or flexible working? Perhaps well-being? Would love to hear how you're handling things.
I've been a fan of Stefan Stern's since his days as the management columnist at the FT. I've just read this piece he's written on why we should actually be planning to return to the office - and how virtual working isn't all that it sounds to be. Personally, I see the value in both. But quite frankly, it's been a long time since I've worked 9-5, 5 days a week. I like being able to work wherever I want to, BUT I also relish being in the office, with the team, especially if there's an opportunity for a flipchart, pen and planning session! Is anyone desperate to get back to the office now? Are you back? https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/jul/19/home-is-where-the-heart-is-but-home-working-is-not-where-the-art-is
