Returning to the Workplace: Shaping the new working landscape

Wednesday, 5th May 2021. 11am

This event is delivered by Leeds City College – Careers, Work Experience and Progression. Places are limited – book now!

As the roadmap to release lockdown restrictions continues as planned, the “New Normal” is officially upon us, but what exactly does that look like? Many people are looking forward to spending time in an office environment again, and balancing staff wellbeing and flexibility with productivity is now central to organisations across the board. Join us for our panel discussion exploring the the new working landscape.

The event will be chaired by Jonny Ross, MD of Leeds-based digital marketing agency Fleek Marketing, who has chaired several panel discussions previously.

Who can attend?

This event is open to all, but will be especially beneficial to you if:

  • You are transitioning from working from home back into the office, whether full or part time
  • You are facilitating the gradual change of employees back into the office
  • You or your employees are already working in the office, and would like to ensure your environment is promoting wellbeing, productivity and flexibility.
