The Next Normal

The next phase in your people plan. Normal has changed. And at some point, it’s going to change again. It’s not just about working from home, the current pandemic shines a light on an organisation’s entire culture, its employee journey and its people experience. And businesses are having to listen, learn and adapt to the ‘next normal’. Our Director Nicky looks at how organisations should be reimagining their people experience.
