Sorry, this event has now ended.

Productivity and Futures of Work from the University of Warwick is scheduling a series of webinars in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has challenged much contemporary thinking in terms of productivity, well-being and the futures of work. The shift to home working, sectors unable to work, and others that are overwhelmed there is no ‘one size fits all’ response. In this series of webinars, experts from across the University of Warwick will be reflecting on the way in which COVID-19 has questioned traditional thinking in relation to and aspect of productivity, well-being and the nature of work. The webinars are intended to spark conversation and debate. They will help to connect those with common interests for further discussion and exploration.

In the second webinar on Wednesday 3 June, Professor Nigel Driffield will discuss what essential work really means, how we define it and the services we need to survive in a Covi- 19 era. In light of high job losses caused by Covid-19, Professor Chris Warhurst will take you through a seven point plan of how the UK government could reboot the industrial strategy in the UK.
