Leading Employment seminar returns
The concept of the ‘new normal’ in working arrangements post-pandemic will be explored in an upcoming event.
‘A New Normal for the Workplace’ will look at the benefits and pitfalls of agile working, the process of formalising new working arrangements and the difficulties of resuming a pre-2020 working environment.
The seminar is the latest from Sintons’ employment team, and follows a series of hugely successful events – held online during lockdown, and more recently in-person – which have attracted professionals working in employment and HR from across the country.
It will be held on April 7, from 8am to 10.30am, at the Vertu Motors Arena in Newcastle.
Keith Land, head of employment at Sintons who is regularly hailed as one of the leading experts in his field in the North, will be among the speakers at the seminar.
“The pandemic and lockdown saw remote working on an unprecedented scale, which marked, for many businesses, the first time they had adopted such a measure,” he says.
“Of course, remote working enabled the continuity of businesses and their service to clients during a time when face-to-face interaction was largely impossible, but now that restrictions have lifted and we are looking at what a ‘new normal’ means, it is now necessary to consider what that looks like in terms of working arrangements.
“In this seminar, we will look at remote and hybrid working, as well as the potential for a complete return to the office, and offer some guidance as to how to negotiate what can be a tricky area.”
