The working world has undergone its greatest shift, since digitisation, over the last two years. Although a move towards more flexible ways of working was anticipated by many, the pace and scale of this change because of the Covid-19 pandemic took the world by surprise.

1) Reducing the impact of business on the environment
2) Improving diversity and inclusion in the workplace
All this change is having a significant impact on international human resources or people management departments. So called “soft skills” like critical thinking and leadership have never mattered more if HR professionals are to work out and implement change in their business.
