  That’s it. They’ve had enough. Enough of the endless Teams calls. Enough of putting their career development on hold. Enough of feeling unsupported, overloaded, and overlooked by their employers. If the reports are true, record numbers of people around the world have come to the realisation that, for them, enough is enough and are considering voluntarily leaving their jobs. SEVEN...

  The COVID-19 pandemic has upended our working world, impacting labour markets and the expectations professionals have around work – therefore, in order to attract the best talent, the style and tone of your organisation’s job adverts may need to change. For example, to reach relevant job seekers and rank well on search engines, job adverts must include keywords – such as key...

So today we’re joined by Tim Ringo, award-winning HR consultant and author of the book Solving the Productivity Puzzle. Tim is here to share how...

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic restrictions in the UK, the last time I went out (apart from to the supermarket) was to see a venue for a Book Festival taking place in September that I’m a key interviewer for. I was actually excited at the prospect, but by the time I had got ready, got in the car, realised en route that I needed petrol, and eventually arrived… I felt quite stressed...

  Generation Z is largely defined as those born between 1996 and 2012. Given that the people born towards the start of this generation are now in their twenties, many are beginning their entry into the workplace. But the COVID-19 pandemic has monumentally impacted the start of their careers. Many have missed out on their first job opportunity, or had their final years of...

In a typical year, Pride is an opportunity for millions to get together in cities across the UK and Ireland to show their support and solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community. Whilst ongoing restrictions are making it difficult for us to celebrate in the way we normally would, it’s still a time for us to acknowledge the progress we’ve made towards achieving equality for LGBTQ+ people, and all...

Here we are, the first Mental Health awareness week since we left a year-long lockdown. While we’re not wholly out of the woods, it’s a good opportunity to pat ourselves on the back and focus on some self-care. Indeed, with a route back to normality within sight, many of us are preparing for a new hybrid way of working, and considering the challenges which may come along with that. In this...

The socioeconomic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has been felt deeply across every societal group, but there is evidence to suggest that women – in particular – have been disproportionately affected. According to the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report, although women make up 39% of the global workforce, they’ve accounted for 54% of the job losses as a result of the pandemic. ...

For the past year, governments and scientists around the world have been focused on how to tackle the real and immediate threat of Covid-19. However, the long-term need for a more sustainable, low-carbon way of life to reduce the impact of climate change has not become any less important and it is now firmly back on the radar for us and many others. Over the past 12 months, many of us have...

One year ago, the first UK wide lockdown was announced and millions were told to stay at home to save lives. While no end date was set, there was expectation that the restrictions would be short term, with Boris Johnson telling the daily Downing Street briefing that in 12 weeks, “we can turn the tide”. A year later the struggle against Covid-19 is still ongoing. However, as the rapid...

  The pandemic is continuing to put tremendous pressure on HR functions around the world as they work to prioritise the wellbeing, productivity and engagement of their people, all whilst operating in a very different world.  Both how and where we work is changing at lightning speed, potentially for good, so it’s even more...

So, today we’re joined by self-confidence coach, Jo Emerson, who’s here to share her expert advice to help leaders build self-confidence in their teams.   1. Please could I ask you to introduce...

This month not only marks International Women’s Day, but it is also a year since the Covid-19 pandemic necessitated the UK’s first nationwide lockdown. Marking these two anniversaries so close together should make us reflect on how the pandemic has disproportionately impacted women. We recently conducted a poll on LinkedIn, in which respondents were asked how the Covid-19 crisis had impacted...

In these socially-distant times, isolation and uncertainty can cause anxiety and stress, and have a detrimental impact upon our general wellbeing and mental health. Towards the end of 2020, we carried out a survey of over 16,200 UK professionals.
