The Growth Company invites you to their event

Here for Business Webinar series: COVID-19 recovery: People at the heart of your growth strategy 

About this event

Business growth in the post-COVID-19 economy

As lockdown restrictions ease, and we move towards the recovery phase of the pandemic, businesses should start to refocus on planning for the future. Now is the time to consider the skills, training and support your workforce will need in order to return to pre-pandemic growth. By considering your route out of lockdown and establishing a clear strategic plan, you can build long-term resilience and successfully transition from the recovery phase to the growth stage.

In this session, expert panellists will explore this topic, reflecting on the learnings of the past year and offering their insights on the future of work.  

This session will include discussions on key issues including:

  • What does the future of work look like? How can we build back better?
  • Skills gap – finding and retaining the right people in uncertain times
  • Long term impact on young people – approach to upskill and develop
  • Managing health and wellbeing – agile working and returning to the workplace
