We recently hosted a series of conversations with leaders in the fields of employee experience, performance management and HR to discuss the impact of the most significant changes in work practices in over a century. We compiled the highlights, tips and tricks, frameworks and inspirational thoughts from the world’s foremost thought leaders in HR.

Kevin Empey, Managing Director of WorkMatters shared his insights on a new way of working:

“It is a giant, ginormous experiment, isn’t it? In new ways of working. I guess it’s what we’re all experiencing and we’re experiencing at the same time. It’s not just like one organization trying something and then finding it doesn’t work. Because the rest of the world is kind of in alignment. And we’re all going through this huge experiment in terms of how work gets done, how decisions are made, how performance is measured, how, who does work, who does the work and where. The lines of delineation between functions and roles are different. I talked to one client the other day, and he was just talking about, you know, leaders are checking in with their folks. “Are you fully utilized? Fine, great, because we need you to really focus on what you’re doing. If you have some utilization, can you can you spare that with other members of the team who are struggling? And if you’re really underutilized, what skills have you got that maybe you would be open to sharing with other functions around the business?” And so there’s this idea of getting people almost to craft their own jobs, rather than the leaders saying ‘do this, do that, or I’ve got the answer’. I think we’ve got this great experiment going on. Even though there’s still a lot of pain and hurt and crisis in the air and more of that to come. I know everybody’s got different circumstances in terms of sector and industry, but I’m certainly aware of several folks who are already beginning to capture what’s going on in the world in the way work is being done right now. But they want to retain what work habits and what work behaviors and ways of working would actually support the culture that they were probably already aspiring to before this happened.”
