    Use this practical guide from the leading voice in the people profession to ensure your business and your workforce thrive in the new world of work.

    The world of work has changed forever. There's no going back. But how can HR professionals and business leaders adapt? How can they deal with both the wellbeing and productivity crisis? What does this mean for organization and job design? What should be done to address the skills gap? How can they build a responsible, trustworthy, purpose-driven organization that the workforce wants? This book has the answer.

    Written by a leading voice in the people profession, The New World of Work takes an evidence-based approach to provide practical advice on how the business and employees can succeed. It covers how to combat stalling productivity, poor wellbeing and the increase in mental health issues in the workplace as well as the need for agile learning, ways to close the skills gap and a refreshingly realistic look at the impact of technology. There is also essential discussion of job design, flexible working, diversity and inclusion (D&I) and how to engage both an ageing workforce and new Gen Z recruits. This book also includes guidance on how to build a business which is responsible, trustworthy and transparent, is based on the principles of 'good work' and is one that employees are proud to work for.

    With global examples and case studies from private and public sector organizations, The New World of Work is the book that HR and business professionals need to seize the opportunity and allow both the business and its people to succeed.
