The Future of Work post COVID-19 lockdown: in conversation with Matthew Taylor

Following his keynote speech at our Future of Work conference last year, Matthew Taylor, Chief Executive of The RSA and author of The Taylor Review report Good Work joined our head of employment, Jean-Pierre van Zyl and Graham Robb of Recognition PR to discuss the effect of the pandemic on good working practices, both now and in the future.

In the first video of the three part series, Matthew and JP share their initial thoughts on some of the potential lasting impacts on working practices as a result of the lockdown.

In the second video of the series, Matthew and JP look to the future and discuss potential strategies that employers could implement to create a sense of stability amongst the on-going uncertainty. Matthew references the idea of a 12 month transition roadmap which has been developed at the RSA and includes substantial changes such as a shift to a six day working week, broken into three day shift patterns.

In the final part of this series, Matthew and JP look to the future and discuss how the world of work, and society, might be permanently changed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are hosting a series of online events for business leaders, employers and senior HR professionals in which we examine a number of the topics covered in these videos.
