Returning to the workplace and hybrid working

CHAMBER INSIGHT SESSIONS with Wollens and Workplace Innovation

Join Exeter Chamber’s brand-new INSIGHT event series with Wollens and Workplace Innovation. The event’s partners will be offering informative talks and updates with useful support and information to help you keep on top of employment, legal and HR subjects.

This series of events will include talks and Q&As on topical issues led by experts in the subject area offering practical guidance and advice for your business.

The sessions will also give you the chance to discuss related ideas, issues and insights with other business owners, managers and support specialists in attendance.

The first session will take place at Hotel du Vin on Wednesday 25th May, 9:45am – 11:30am with a focus on returning to the workplace and hybrid working and how to manage this still fairly new approach to working.

The mid-morning session, with speakers Jon Dunkley (Wollens), Rosemary Exton (Workplace Innovation) and Peter Totterdill (Workplace Innovation) will give practical solutions to support businesses moving to a hybrid working model as well as insight into how creating great places to work can in turn improve performance and wellbeing in the workplace.
