Wednesday 27th May

Event: Bath HR Network Virtual Coffee Morning with Jane Ginnever from Shift Consultancy

At this virtual coffee morning, Jane Ginnever will discuss how organisations can learn from their experiences over the last three months and capture what’s worked well for them.

As a long-standing advocate of autonomy as a motivator of performance, Jane will share why the freedom to work flexibly and choose how and where to work can be helpful to individuals and organisations.

She’ll also talk about how new ways of working, based on what’s worked well for your business, can be developed and tested in organisations to make the changes you want to see more permanent.

Jane helps business leaders to shift their thinking about the way that work can work. This is more important now than ever as we transition to a different workplace during COVID-19.
