Employees rising – Webinar

Meeting the challenge of rising employee activism through better workplace policies

The combination of the pandemic and social unrest have led to major new trends, as well as pushing other long-standing issues to the forefront.

In particular, the debate around the future of work has seen an unprecedented rise in workplace activism, enabled and amplified by social media.

Across all sectors and geographies, workers are becoming more vocal in articulating their views – about the workplace, their employer and wider social issues.

This discontent has been amplified by digital technology and social media and caused significant reputational damage. Where traditional, internal communication channels have failed to meet their needs, external means of raising concerns have filled the void.

The organisations that will thrive in the workplace of the future will be those that find a way to redefine the workforce relationship, manage tensions and create a common, compelling vision.

What company leaders need is an Employee Activism Playbook to help them navigate uncharted territory.

This took place on 18 August – 1 pm to 2.40 pm Sydney time.

We featured 10 experts sharing their views on the future of work and how you can harness employee activism for improvements in your workplace and corporate culture.

This webinar supports Rework APAC Summit 2021, a large event dedicated to hybrid workplaces and the digital office. It takes place simultaneously in Sydney and Singapore on 17-18 November 2021.
