Tynan Barton: The future of work will be centred around the employee experience

During this dedicated Future of Work Week, in association with Aon, we have brought you exclusive insights and opinions, uncovering the latest trends and thinking around the future of work and how reward and benefits will support it.

Emerging, hopefully for the last time, from many of the restrictions imposed on us by the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, such as the work-from-home guidance, thoughts are naturally turning to what the world of work will look like in the coming months. Indeed, many employers have already put in place post-pandemic strategies to ensure their employees are supported while businesses continue along the road to recovery.

Much of the conversation around the future of work is focused on hybrid ways of working and what this means for the employee experience. What does it mean to offer true flexibility to employees? Have we focused too much on the location, with many relocated to home offices during the pandemic, as opposed to the timeframes in which employees work? In order to attract and retain the key talent needed to push businesses forward, will we see increased flexibility offered on working hours?
