Since March 2018, Continuity Logic has been staging a series of thought leadership events at The Shard in central London. These in-person events have brought together experts from a variety of disciplines related to continuity and resilience to share information in an unbiased forum, and they have been extremely well received.
For reasons you will understand these events have now been switched to a digital format and for our next event we are addressing what is arguably the biggest work-related story to arise from the pandemic: home working.
This will not be about anecdotes but analysis. How have organisations fared in their forced transition to home working? Has the apparent initial success been maintained? After six months at home are employees thriving or struggling? And what are the implications for the future of the office?
Charley Newnham, Enterprise Resilience Lead, PwC will explore the key lessons learned by business sector. This will include an appraisal of initial responses, how local lockdowns and other more agile measures are being handled, plans for returning to work, and a look ahead to what we can expect to see in 2021.
Dr Aarti Anhal, Positive Psychology Practitioner & Coach, before nine will then explore the human side of homeworking. She will look at what is gained and lost through homeworking, how different people have coped, and whether there is a pattern to those who are happy to work permanently from home and those who are not.
Finally, Stella Nunn, Director, Operational Resilience, PwC will explore the topic from the perspective of financial services organisations. In particular, the impact of the pandemic and home working on the Bank of England regulatory timeline. She will revisit the key regulatory topics of business services, impact tolerance and stress testing, and ask where should firms now be in terms of progress.
