    The world of work is rapidly transforming. Businesses need to better understand their employees desires and aspirations, to enable them to recruit the best people and to keep those people happier and more productive in the workplace.

    Join this panel discussion to explore the key piece to the puzzle ‒ enabling employees to lead more flexible working lives. Although it will require a change in mind-set for some businesses, the substantial benefits of enabling flexibility can come at a low cost. But in order to maximise those benefits, businesses need to be able to tailor their practices to appeal to the new ‘QuadGen’ workforce.
