CIPD Podcast 121 - Look ahead 2017

Date: 03/01/17 | Duration: 00:17:21

2016 has been a year of change and upheaval socially, politically and economically. From the National Living Wage and the Apprenticeship Levy to Brexit and the US election, events over the past year are set to have a significant impact on work and working lives.

In this episode we talk to Margaret Heffernan, Laura Overton and Laura Harrison about the effect these changes are having – and will have – on businesses and their employees and what HR and L&D professionals can be doing to help prepare themselves and their organisations for the year ahead.

Correction: Laura Overton is founder and CEO of Towards Maturity. This episode mistakenly refers to the organisation as Beyond Maturity.
