The Lockdown Life Audit Salon

Looking at Trends as Business Strategy

When it comes to ideas around behavioural change, surgeon Maxwell Maltz applied the principles acquired in his line of work to change his habits. He realised that 21 days was sufficient time to create an awareness to shift behavioural patterns.

The lockdown period has spanned 24 months and has had a similar effect. Some habits have evolved so much that they form an integral part of how the post-pandemic workforce lives and works. This coupled with the tragic loss of life and/or income has created an existential crisis within the workplace that cannot be ignored or wished away.

Immediate trends from this crisis are semigration, revenge travel, the great resignation and the anti-work movement.

But these are just the tip of the iceberg. 

A workforce revolution is upon us. Leadership principles from 2019 are not going to cut it. 

Our last Flux Trends Salon for the year will unpack and interrogate the insights from the trend briefing – The lockdown life audit and how it is shaping the workforce of the future

  • Underestimating the ripple effect of this Life Audit and how it has changed the priorities of the workforce.
  • Reengineering rewards & benefits to create a mutually beneficial post-pandemic company culture.
  • Switching from a location-centric mindset to a human-centric mindset.
  • The danger of a “two-speed organisation” and nurturing a sense of belonging.
  • The very different skill sets managers now have to master.
  • Lessons we can learn from the new Gen Z workforce.

And so much more.

Who Should Attend

This trend briefing is for all business leaders (CEOs to COOs), senior managers, administrators and all HR practitioners who have had to adapt to a post-pandemic world of work.
