Society is changing, faster than it was, and the 'workplace of the future' might be closer than we thought.
In 2018, long before the pandemic, Forbes stated that more than 70% of people around the world used to work remotely at least once a week. With COVID-19, many of us have been, at some point, forced to work from home. But what's next? How will these changes affect our workplaces in the longer term?
In this session we'll discuss how workplaces are changing, both on a physical level and the way we work. Our team will provide practical guidance to both employers and employees on aspects from Immigration and Tax to Employment, Data Security and Technology.
We will discuss the following themes:
- Flexibility that employers will need to demonstrate to retain the workforce of the future;
- Immigration: sponsor licences, remote working, current regime in the UK and how this will change post-Brexit;
- Tax implications: personal taxation and tax considerations for companies when key people are working abroad;
- Employment: managing your workforce and key arrangements to enable remote working;
- Data protection considerations;
- Technology: how traditional workplace settings might be disrupted by new technologies, and how organisations should implement appropriate safeguards to protect against resultant harms.
