WILL YOUR ORGANISATION’S CULTURE HELP IT TO THRIVE?

OD GROUP

LEADING THROUGH A PANDEMIC

Seemingly overnight, the COVID - 19 pandemic ushered in a formidable global disruption both in its magnitude and in its intimacy. Referred to as “ The Great Pause, ” it forced individuals, organisations, and even humanity at large to stop, look inward, and then shift how they operate in the world. The research we ' ll consider collates the views and experience of more than 2,500 participants from around the world and will help you to understand what different groups of employees want going forward.

In this interactive session for senior HR and OD professionals we ' ll explore research carried out by the Barrett Values Centre on how COVID - 19 has impacted the values and culture of organisations.

What do employees and employers want to see more or less of going forward? Are these aligned?

We will help you to explore what this means for your organisation and how you might share this research to stimulate dialogue and change.

HR'S ROLE IN ABOLISHING MODERN SLAVERY

ETHICAL PRACTICE

BACKGROUND

Modern slavery is where one person controls another by exploiting a vulnerability. It is often linked with human trafficking, where a person is forced into service against their will – usually forced work or prostitution. The control can be physical, financial or psychological.

The Modern Slavery Act requires all businesses with an annual turnover above £ 36 million to publish an annual statement on Modern Slavery and Trafficking, identifying what steps they are taking to ensure that slavery and human trafficking are not taking place in their business ( and their supply chain ) . Despite this, one survey indicated that 77 % of organisations expected to find modern slavery in their operations or supply chain. Alongside the legal responsibilities, ethical practice is one of the core behaviours in the CIPD Profession Map. Reputations are based not only on an organisation ’ s delivery of its products and services, but on how it values its relationships with its staff and stakeholders, and how it establishes responsibility and accountability towards them.

This hard - hitting event with Susan Banister of the Slave - Free Alliance will focus on what HR professionals can do about modern slavery.
