With a strong people-centric approach to leadership surfacing on the C-level agenda today, a growing attention to what makes people productive will become an important management perspective when creating the future workplace after COVID-19.

Today, most organisations focus on providing great customised service experiences that cater to individual needs, impose a strong sense of belonging and pride in work. This agenda will bring forth a new role for management in the future workplace, focusing on remote work leadership and a proactive distance feedback culture that supports employees and tends to their needs. A more ‘responsible human leadership’ approach will be carried out in organisations – not only for managing employees but also to exercise social responsibility and public spirit. Conclusively, it will bring to attention those businesses who best succeed in moving ‘above and beyond’ to support employees while making a positive contribution to society – and rumours will spread fast!

At SIGNAL, we have gathered 20 years of evidence collected from organisations across industries and sectors and we know, that there are many great and constructive solutions to be applied.
