Speaker: Dr Jane Parry, Associate Professor and Director of Research for HRM and Organisational Behaviour, University of Southampton

Dr Parry will be running an interactive session debating the way forward for workers and employers in a post-pandemic world. She will discuss her recent report which showcases five recommendations for employers as they consider how to organise work that meets the changing needs of workers. The case-study research was started a year before lockdown began so has become highly relevant for employees and employers when considering work-place adaptability and workforce wellbeing.
