Podcast series: listen to key discussions on the Future of Work

01 July 2021 | Global


To mark the launch of our flagship Future of Work report, this podcast series explores the shape of the modern workplace.

​Even before COVID-19, employers and employees were living through a fundamental transformation in the way we work.  The pandemic has accelerated change in how we work and connect with staff, clients, suppliers and wider stakeholders. To help you understand what these changes could mean for you and how they could affect your organisation, our podcast series offers global perspectives on some of the issues highlighted in our recent Future of Work report.

Discussions will focus on the potential global restructuring of supply chains, Directors and Officers obligations and liability, the impact on remuneration and incentives, digital transformation of the workplace, and more.
