About this event
The next month will see a step change in how we live with COVID-19 with schools set to reopen and government guidance encouraging people to return to the office. The challenge of bringing potentially millions of people back to shared spaces across Greater Manchester whilst minimising the risk of infection can only be met if the people, businesses and leaders that use or own these spaces are able to collaborate and do their bit.
This session will invite leaders from local government and business to discuss these challenges, providing clarity on the latest guidance, looking at examples of what this new world of work might look like, considering strategies to manage the safety, health and wellbeing of employees and deliberating on the process of managing change within an organisation.
The session will address some of the immediate barriers to returning to the workplace including Public Transport capacity, face covering uptake, schooling/childcare, adherence to the test and trace scheme, as well as the inherent on-going risks around second wave and localised lockdowns.
