The Impact of Changing the Way We Work- Emma Swan and Amy Stokes, Partners in Forbes Commercial Employment team, will explore the impact that Covid and Brexit has had on the recruitment and employment of staff. Emma will discuss the practical and legal impact of the future of work as many organisations move to hybrid and remote working.
