    Aim –help large and small businesses putting the right changes in place to minimize the impact e.g. in terms of mental health impact

    The pandemic has changed the nature of work which has required considerable adaptation on the part of individuals and organisations. Labour market statistics show a sharp increase in unemployment and the level of redundancies are at their highest since records began in 1995. Major organisational restructures and redundancies are expected to continue. What needs to be put in place to manage uncertainty and support people through potentially traumatic processes such as restructure. What is best practice in terms of redundancy guidance and support? What should one do when this process is being planned to keep people supported throughout the process? There has been a rapid shift to home-working that is likely to continue for the foreseeable future, so the need for frameworks and tools that assess psychosocial risk factors as well as ergonomic concerns and the importance of training is highlighted. Evidence based interventions are needed to help organisations

    meet the challenges of future working conditions and support the wellbeing of staff. This webinar identifies ‘what is likely to work’ in terms of interventions to support people through major upheavals such as restructures and redundancies. (working at home).

    “Leadership and speaking up” Dr Henrietta Hughes, NHS National Guardian What is the value of speaking up? Henrietta will provide case examples that highlight the importance and value of doing so. Too often, says Henrietta Hughes, “the policies of the past have not fostered a culture where people feel safe to speak up”. When NHS workers’ warnings about poor care, unsafe practices or bad management are not heard and acted on, says Hughes, “we see the consequences. Leaders need to be able to ask the right questions of the board, and to challenge them on actions that are underway”. She explains that Guardians use their discretion in deciding how to handle issues – from having a quiet word with a colleague of the complainant, to requesting a full-blown independent investigation.

    Dr Henrietta Hughes was appointed in July 2016 as the National Guardian for the NHS, a key recommendation from the Francis Inquiry into the events at Mid-Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust. She provides leadership and support to Freedom to Speak Up Guardians across England in NHS and Independent sector organisations, and other parts of the healthcare sector, with a view to making speaking up business as usual.
