The Evolution of the Employment Contract in a Hybrid Working World – Breakfast Seminar
The pandemic triggered a remote work revolution, but our traditional employment contracts haven't kept up with the shift. It's time for an overhaul.
Date: Tuesday 17 October
Where: SMB (Simons Muirhead Burton),87-91 Newman Street, London W1T 3EY
Relevance to: Chief People Officers & HR leaders
*All registrations will be verified and invitations confirmed.
Join us as we partner with highly renowned law firm SMB (Simons Muirhead Burton) to explore how the traditional employment contract needs to adapt to suit the demands of a hybrid working world.
Over the course of this 90-minute breakfast seminar, we will tackle the following key areas:
- How to redefine workplace boundaries
- How to balance flexibility and employee rights
- How to define work hours, location and availability when the office is optional? Do you need to stipulate a minimum number of in-office days if that is the employee’s designated place of work?
- How to balance flexible working with the need for the ‘right to disconnect’
- How to ensure your duty of care obligations are met whilst they are WFH
- How to ensure data security, especially for overseas remote workers
- How to provide training and build culture in distributed teams
- How to evaluate performance and pay fairly in a hybrid setting
- How to define working hours and location – especially if your workforce is spread across different countries and time zones?
- How to provide your organisation with a framework that ensures employees can work remotely safely and effectively
Attendees will leave with clear solutions to update employee agreements for the hybrid era.
