Event: The New Ways of Working from the SMART Working workstream

We have made the decision to postpone this event. We will announce a new date as soon as possible. 
If you would like to register your attendance, please email [email protected] and we will contact you once the new date has been announced.

We are delighted to invite you to The New Ways of Working (NWoW), an event discussing how to boost flexibility and staff retention, how to remove barriers and outdated management styles and align them into a modern multi-generational workforce.

The latest research estimates 87% of job seekers in the UK require flexible working*. Empowering individuals to work more effectively and efficiently has shown to improve performance both at individual and team level, whilst also offering improved work life balance and employee engagement.

SMART Working encourages companies to optimise their working practices and conditions to enable employees to generate strong ideas and unique investment insights. We believe that this helps companies build the best savings and investment products. Our mission is to attract and retain the best and most diverse industry talent, by actively supporting and enabling professionals to remain in the workforce throughout all life events

The event is tailored for C-suite and Senior Managers of investment firms; the decision makers who can make an impact, as well as individuals interested in learning more about flexible working.
