How to manage a smart, safe and phased return to the workplace

Our panel of experts discussed:

  • The future workplace - a hub of community and inspiration
  • Bringing together HR, Facilities and IT
  • The key challenges for the employee and the employer
  • A people-centric strategy that includes people, place, process and technology

As business leaders face the challenge of getting back to the workplace and what that should look like, now is the time to consider the opportunity to reimagine and move their business forward to where they believe it should be.

Leaders should seek to harness and cultivate the new mindset their organisation has adopted and displayed in recent months. It was a willingness to embrace change that enabled organisations to move to mass remote working in such a short space of time. This same mindset can, therefore, be the enabler for new initiatives and opportunities. As the future will require a workforce that is agile, flexible and adaptable.

The office no longer needs to be a location, visited daily with one specific function. They’ll become more fluid, smarter offices which act as a hybrid space designed to unify people under your brand.

In this webinar you will gain knowledge on gaining a collective insight, to enable you to build a transformed organisation that will inspire employees, build trust with buyers and align Corporate Social Responsibility with business purpose.

Customer Experience Roundtable: A conversation on reimagining the workplace

With The Institute of Facilities & Workplace management (IWFM)

Our panel of experts discussed:

  • How organisations have responded since the initial impact of lockdown
  • What are the main challenges and opportunities for teams and businesses
  • How HR, Facilities & IT teams are working together
  • What is the vision of working from home and adapting the workplace

As we all face the challenge of getting back to the workplace and what that should look like, now is the time to consider the opportunity and move forward to where we want to be.

The willingness to embrace change, which enabled mass remote working at such short notice, brings with it the opportunity to harness and cultivate new approaches. This same attitude can be the enabler for new ways of working, as success and growth will come from a workforce that is even more agile, flexible and adaptable than before.

Ultimately, the foundation of a successful workplace is your people and the way they interact to achieve their goals and perform to the best of their ability. You need to ensure your people are engaged and productive, able to communicate and collaborate effectively. Therefore the workplace does not need to be a set location, visited daily with one specific function. It can become a fluid, smarter space, designed as a place of community, innovation and learning.

In this webinar you’ll hear from a panel of our customers as they discuss and share their own visions, insights and plans as we reimagine and adapt.

How to protect and enhance the wellbeing of your people working at home

Our panel of experts discussed:

  • Working from home wellbeing
  • Top tips for remote working success
  • How you can help your remote workers
  • What our customers are telling us about how they have adapted

As we’ve moved to a world where working from home is a necessity, change has been implemented at speed and this has brought its own unique set of challenges. Many have risen to this in unparalleled circumstances. Now is the time to review, adjust and plan for the future to ensure this adaption is scalable and flexible - it’s never been more important to focus on your people and their wellbeing.

Recently the IDC European IT Buyer Sentiment Survey revealed that 38% of organisations supported remote working Pre-March-2020. Following Boris Johnson’s announcement introducing the nationwide lockdown that number swiftly shifted to 89%. While necessity and technology has allowed this trend to grow and dramatically expand, no one ever expected to be working this way 5 days a week for months on end.​

So how do you ensure your people and teams can balance life and work in unusual circumstances?

Our panel of experts discussed:

  • Working from home wellbeing
  • Top tips for remote working success
  • How you can help your remote workers
  • What duty of care of employees working from home need
  • What our customers are telling us about how they have adapted
  • How organisations can ensure they are listening to their employees

How to simplify your eProcurement strategy - driving efficiency and cost-savings

Our panel of experts discussed:

  • The simple steps you can take to drive efficiency in procurement
  • How to consolidate your eProcurement
  • Customising the procurement process from pricing to product portfolio
  • Developing support for your professional home workers

High-performing organisations tend to have fewer suppliers. In fact, highly-effective procurement departments have 78%* fewer suppliers than typical companies. But why is this so important?

Procurement teams have a massive impact on the foundation of your business – and a strategic, consolidated approach to procurement can lead to cost-savings, less admin, more accurate reporting, streamlined processes and better cost control.

Modern eCommerce systems have made it much easier for managers, directors and procurement teams to track purchase behaviour. In the current climate this kind of visibility and drive for cost efficiency is of paramount importance.

In this webinar you’ll hear from a panel of experts as they share best practice and helpful tools to evaluate and re-define these processes within your organisation.

  • The simple steps you can take to drive efficiency in procurement

Building business resilience: Digitising your accounts receivable process


Join our panel of experts and learn:

  • How digitising your accounts receivable (AR) process can build business resilience
  • What the business case is for automating your AR process
  • What the risks of a manual AR process are to your business
  • How to get started and implement a simple tool to increase cash flow and visibility

Building business resilience is a top priority for Financial Directors right now and more than ever, you need good cash flow and visibility within your organisation. Automated cash collection is proven to save accounting staff one hour a day, save organisations £13 per invoice and allow them to pay themselves back within six to eighteen months.

Manually processing and physical invoices and collections is hard to manage and error prone, meaning your business is being held back. Shifting to automated accounts receivable will not only help your organisation through a crisis, but help protect it for the future. It’s a sensible investment with a clear and immediate ROI.

In this webinar you’ll hear from our panel of experts as they share insights and highlight practical tools you can easily implement to ensure you gain access to accurate financial data, securely from wherever you are.

  • How digitising your accounts receivable (AR) process can build business resilience

In recent months we’ve seen monumental change implemented at speed, with very little notice. Digital transformation, that previously may have taken years, now needs to be embraced with a new urgency.
