How to lead, succeed, and boss HR

Business changed dramatically in 2021.  Mindsets shifted. Technologies changed. We adopted new ways of working. If you’re running a small business based in the UK and want to know how to overcome some of the key challenges created for employees and business owners during the pandemic, then read this article so you can lead, succeed, and boss HR.

We’re revealing some interesting statistics on the impact of COVID-19 on businesses and we’re giving you top tips so that you can prioritise health and well-being, grow and engage top talent and embrace diversity and inclusion.

Find out how you can minimise stress and maximise happiness:

  1. Emotional – supporting employee well-being
  2. Physical – keeping employees physically healthy
  3. Social – improving communication with social groups
  4. Financial – supporting employees with financials

Discover how to improve well-being by embracing flexible ways of working:

  • A hybrid of working at home and in the office: a popular way to unlock the benefits of both worlds.
  • The four-day work week: compressed hours across a four-day week or cutting the working week to four days without adding hours on.
  • Remote working: working at home full time.
  • Flexible leave: enabling employees to work extra hours and take the time off rather than accepting overtime pay.

Find out how to reduce turnover and improve job satisfaction

From re-engaging employees to retaining them, to identifying high potential employees. And learn how to overcome key diversity and inclusion challenges to ensure equal opportunities for everyone at a time where women have been greatly affected by the pandemic.
