Taking ownership of agile working: how do we re-establish the foundations for where, when, and how we work?

This webinar will look at the latest evidence-based practice to support employers with offering flexibility by default to the current and future NHS workforce. 

agiLab is a collaboration between University of Sussex and the NHS to develop research-led best practices for effective agile working. 

Why you should attend

  • As we continue to adjust to life after the pandemic, we will explore whether employers need to reset their vision of agile working to attract and retain a diverse and sustainable workforce.
  • Hear the latest research in agile working, this time focusing on constant connectivity.
  • Take away solutions and actions you can begin to put into practice.
  • Think about whether offering agile apprenticeships and placements could help to attract and retain the future workforce.
  • Hear best practice from an exemplar leader.
