2021 Topic: “Inclusion in an evolving industry – moving from reactive to proactive practices”
We all need to future proof and support our human resources. We must be innovative, or face being left behind. Prior to 2020, it was already difficult for some people to find jobs in our industry and if they did, there were challenges of acceptance and inclusion.
The 2020 workforce reductions have caused a knowledge drain and have also impacted our older workforce more than other groups. The move to remote, agile and flexible work has changed the way some of us work in our city hubs, but many of our field staff are facing different challenges. With a different job market in 2021, how do we ensure that everyone gets a fair chance?
The 2021 breakfast discussed changes that we can make to set our industry up for success in 2021 and beyond.
