11:45 - Recruiting post Covid – how can organisations open up their talent pools after the rise in remote working?

Look at any survey and you’ll see employees expect a hybrid model of working post-Covid, one that suits their needs and the organisations. Covid forced remote working onto companies but are your hiring leaders really happy for this to continue? Before you start thinking of recruiting remote workers let’s discuss possible roadblocks to making this a reality in the 20 minute live Q&A session.

13:50 - Performance managing remote workers effectively in the wake of Covid?

Remote/hybrid workers and managers may be fraught with challenges leading to a disproportionate effect on careers. As managers conduct performance reviews, there is a need to avoid crisis-specific biases. How can managers remove ambiguity from the review process, be accountable for fairness and while continuing to advance organisational goals.

Day Two

09:35 - Workplace rights: How could rights change for remote workers?

The digitalisation of many industries and flexible working is of growing importance. Benefits of working from home include improved work-life balance, no travel time, more time spent with friends and family. But, it also has challenges. With the easing lockdown, organisations must now review remote set-ups and determine structures moving forward. Do employees have the right to work from home, how do you apply to work from home and what can you do if the request is denied?

Kathy Daniels, Associate Professor, Aston University

13:05 - Does using technology to recruit and onboard help or hinder diversity and inclusion?

Technology is said to be a great ally in the drive for an inclusive and diverse workforce. However, artificial intelligence systems built from learning data may be skewed towards the view of the person building it resulting in biased outcomes. During this session, we will discuss the fairness of AI systems and the need to align human-centric approaches to recruitment with evolving technologies.
