29 Feb 2024 Webinar: London UK

This webinar will explore the increase in workplace conflicts and the changing expectations of a multi-generational workforce.

The last few years have seen businesses strive to adapt to the ever-changing expectations of their employees. Employers are increasingly expected to take a position on key issues like diversity, political conflict and polarised discussions over cultural and religious beliefs and opinions affecting their workforce.

The increasing use of technology bringing our offices into our living rooms and the opportunities for expression on social media all serve to blur the line between our private and our work life, leaving employers with the unenviable job of trying to maintain appropriate standards of behaviour and manage resulting conflict.

In this webinar, we will explore this increase in workplace conflicts and the changing expectations of a multi-generational workforce and will consider how mediation and facilitated conversations can support businesses.

21 Mar 2024 Webinar: London UK

There is plenty to discuss in our regular round-up of the latest developments in employment law.

We already have new rules on calculation of holiday entitlement and pay, and some unexpected changes to discrimination rights under the Equality Act. From April, extended redundancy protection during family-related leave comes into force, as does the right to carer’s leave and new rules on flexible working. We also now have more detail on various rights due to come in later, including the new duty to prevent sexual harassment. Significant recent cases include rulings on holiday pay, worker status and the requirements for a fair redundancy consultation.

Join us for an update on all these developments together with any other up-to-the-minute news.

15 May 2024 Panel: London UK

Join us for our fourth event of our Creative Economy Series hosted by Phil Hughes: The inevitable Death of Gate Keepers and what it Means for the Creator Economy.

The rise of social platforms has played a pivotal role in reshaping the landscape of content and product creation. Our experts will delve into the boom of the creator economy, looking at the evolution of social media and what the next phase may hold for creators in terms of opportunity, funding and distribution.

The death of gatekeepers is characterised by a shift in power from centralised authorities to individual creators and users. Social platforms have played a pivotal role in this transformation, empowering individuals to share their voices, creativity, and expertise on a global scale and social commerce is changing the game again. These individuals own their audience, platforms and rights and it is creating a shift in what investment into many start-ups looks like.
