The Changing World of Work - Implications for Our D&I Strategies, This is Me India Forum Meeting, DIAN India Open House

Description

Day 1
Future of Work - Supporting Caregivers in the Workplace
4 November 2020 |10:00-11:30am (UTC+5:30)

“Companies that succeed amid COVID-19 will be those that prioritise people”. If employees don’t get the support they need for their caregiving responsibilities then employers pay the hidden costs, including turnover, rehiring, presenteeism, absenteeism and a setback to diversity representation. In this session we explore why companies need to develop a “care culture” that supports employees’ changing needs as caregivers

 

Day 2
Future of the Work- Creating a Diverse & Inclusive Gig Workforce
5 November 2020 | 10:00 -11:30am (UTC+5:30)

The rapid evolution in the gig economy suggests that this is the greatest prospect of work for the future. Professionals are increasingly moving to flexible ways of working across career stages. This could be a huge opportunity for organisations to focus on improving representation of diverse talent in the workforce by trying flexible working models. In this session we understand gig working model, get insights on real life examples and experiences of gig workers that could help explore ways to accelerate diversity agenda in the organisations.
