The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated the use of technology in all aspects of society, including the workplace. Efficiencies are gained by the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to recruit and manage the workforce. With these changes come a raft of benefits, but there are also pitfalls.
Jobs are also changing where roles are automated and staff are retrained. As well as increasing efficiencies, technology has enabled businesses to attract and retain new talent by improving work-life balance. More people are choosing to work remotely and even to live and work in different countries from where their employer is based, many are working in permanent hybrid roles, and some employers are trialling a four day working week. How should employers monitor their performance and what are the risks in doing so?
In this webinar (held on Tuesday 8 November) our employment team discussed the current trends and explored the practical and legal implications these changes are having and what employers should be doing to prepare for new ways of working.
