The People Summit Series – Supporting flexible working in leadership roles
Our People Summit Series brings together strategic decision-makers, experienced HR practitioners and senior executives responsible for managing, retaining and attracting talented people.
This event focuses on the benefits of facilitating flexible working for those in leadership roles.
Flexible working: making it work for leadership roles
In recent years, “yes” has become the default answer to the majority of flexible working requests. Organisations now recognise that accommodating personal circumstances not only helps retain talented employees, but also allows them to bring skills and experiences from outside work. In short, it makes good business sense.
However, much is still expected of those in senior roles. There are client demands to meet, new business to win, teams to manage and networks to build. The perception remains that being at the top of the career ladder is incompatible with a life outside work. It’s easy to see how this could deter high-achieving individuals seeking a true work/life balance from fully committing to their career ambitions.
Our latest People Summit Series event looks at making flexible working viable for those in leadership roles and the value of an environment that supports anyone with high aspirations. Our panellists will share their experiences of working part-time in senior roles within their organisations, fulfilling their responsibilities to clients, colleagues and stakeholders without compromising on their priorities at home.
The session will be chaired by Dom Holmes, Partner & Co-Head of Employment, Taylor Vinters, with expert contributions from:
- Kim Wedral-Rooke, Employment Partner, Taylor Vinters
- Jason Mellad, CEO and Co-Founder, Start Codon
- Soreya Senior, HR Business Partner, Agenus
We also welcome contributions from delegates in similar positions, and from senior HR professionals on how their organisations address this particular challenge.
