Lead the Way: Are you switched on to Switching Off?

The Right to Disconnect is coming into force in August. Are you across exactly what this means as a leader?

In this age of hybrid – or even fully remote – working, we often see the lines of the once strict 9-5 working day become a blurry wave of easy availability, no matter your supposed working pattern. Accustomed to flexibilities now more than ever, the computer or phone isn’t chained to our office desk anymore, it is chained to our hands. This allows us to be accessible and communicate freely, 24/7 and can muddy the waters as to when working life stops, and personal life starts.

Join us as we welcome Adam Foster, Partner, Employment and Safety Lawyer, as we look at the upcoming implementation of the new legislation around the Right to Disconnect in detail, and how as leaders we need to balance workplace well being with potential risks to business operations.

Adam will also delve into advice around contractual provisions and the ramifications for leaders who do not embrace this new legislation. He will also explore how – or if – this new right will actually create greater fairness in workplace.

Finally, Adam will also provide some practical advice and applications to take back to your own teams for implementation ahead of the August deadline and beyond.

We look forward to seeing you at this session – imperative for your own leadership journey and those you lead!
