How to create an engaging culture in this new world of hybrid and remote working: a talk with Richard Roberts

BCI Talk

6th Oct 2022




Origin Workspace, 40 Berkeley Square, Bristol, BS8 1HP

Join employee engagement and culture specialist Richard Roberts who will share his experiences delivering successful hybrid working! He’ll identify why organisations struggle, and what they can do to create the engaging culture needed to make it work.

People are going back to the office – but they want flexibility about homeworking too. Any organisation serious about attracting and retaining the best talent needs to get hybrid working right. The more successful you are at delivering this, the more engaged and productive your people will be. That’s why a successful hybrid working mix is so important. Employers won’t reap the benefits of hybrid working if they fail to create employee engagement along with it.

What you’ll learn:

  • The three key ingredients in creating an engaging culture
  • The new ways of working
  • Why managing a hybrid team is a very different experience
  • Maximising the positives of a hybrid working environment
  • Overcoming the downsides
  • How Tech can help with engagement

This session is particularly relevant to anyone running an SME or those working in HR generalist roles in larger businesses, responsible for introducing hybrid and flexible working.  Perhaps you’re a senior manager who wants to get this balance right in order to retain your people. Anyone interested in how organisational culture is changing and where the future of work is going will get useful takeaways from this event.

This talk will be held at Origin Workspace in Berkeley Square. Join us from 12.30pm for tea/coffee and networking, with the talk beginning at 1pm.
