Much has changed in workplace and workforce trends in the post-pandemic. In Asia, one of the key trends that evolved out of the pandemic was the introduction of remote work. Billed as a way to increase work-life balance, boost productivity and drive employee retention, the policy has gained popularity as firms competed in a tight labour market coming out of the pandemic.
Further, Gen Z's, and those born between 1997 and 2002, will likely have begun their first job in the height of the pandemic. Having only experienced remote or hybrid working, this will have a profound impact on the company culture. Workers who have experience of working before the pandemic now had to manage them.
Join us as we unpack how firms in Singapore have adapted to changing company cultures. Our keynote presentation and following panel discussion will help business leaders understand the demands of the future, people-centric workplace, and the best people management practices.
