The Human Development Committee will hold a in-person meeting on the Unilever Campus on the topic of
“New Ways of Working with the Post-Pandemic Workforce”.

 

SYNOPSIS:

The Covid pandemic has accelerated new ways of working beyond not coming to an office every day. Singapore has been at the forefront in adopting many changes in how work is organised and executive and companies have experimented in different ways. Concerning workers themselves, many social indicators, as well as labour movements in different countries, show that the contract with employers is changing.

This meeting followed by a luncheon will be the first opportunity in a long time for EuroCham members to meet in person, to share their experiences during Covid and their strategies for the future. The occasion will also allow members to discover first-hand the new work designs and policies implemented at Unilever’s campus in Singapore. The session is graciously hosted by Rong Shang Cheong and the HR team at Unilever.
