“Is the 21st Century Workplace equipped with the right culture?”

As we exit from the pandemic, into the new normal, it would appear that hybrid working is here to stay, however, given some of the events even recently in the news, it seems many organisations are still struggling to understand how to get the culture right.

Productivity and monitoring software sales have boomed, but did organisations get it right? Is what some businesses done even legal? Has a pandoras box of future data protection issues been opened?

– Hybrid working is here to stay – but is the 21st century office run on 19th century culture measuring productivity – bums on seats, hours worked or actual output?

– Does productivity and employee monitoring software equal a more productive workplace?
– Monitoring, snooping and the Data Protection Act

Presented by: Mike Gillespie, Managing Director, Advent IM
