Hosted in partnership with Uber for Business, the latest webinar from HR magazine will explore how to consider neurodiversity, disability and different cultures in the workforce to create a more personal employee experience.
HR magazine deputy editor Beau Jackson will be chairing the discussion.
She will be joined by Jas Rai, the British Library’s head of people, Angela Matthews, head of policy and research at the Business Disability Forum (BDF), and Neil Morrison, group HR director at Severn Trent.
Joining the British Library in the midst of the pandemic, Rai has launched a new, three-year people strategy to transform the organisation’s culture and policy.
Integral to this new strategy is diversity, inclusion and employee wellbeing.
Rai also has a wealth of experience in all aspects of HR organisational development from talent management to strategic workforce planning, and previously worked for Sony as head of talent & development.
From BDF, Matthews specialises in UK work, health, and disability policy.
She is an adviser to and research partner on several academic research projects related to health, disability inclusion, and inclusive employment.
She has been a HR specialist in disability and workplace adjustments, disability-related employee casework, equalities data management and employee relations.
Morrison has been group HR director at Severn Trent since 2017 holding executive responsibility for the company's HR, internal communications, external communications, marketing and brand.
Prior to joining Severn Trent, Morrison was group HR director at Random House, and oversaw its merger with Penguin in 2013.
In 2021, Morrison also made it into the top 10 on the HR Most Influential Practitioners list.
Together, the panellists will discuss ways HR can be more proactive, rather than reactive with wellbeing strategy, covering:
- Practical suggestions for catering to the different needs in your workforce
- The perks employers can offer that can mean the difference between an average and a great day at work
- How to develop a wellbeing strategy that lasts and adapts to changing needs
All HR Lunchtime Debates encourage the active participation of the audience at home, and questions will be answered at the end of the webinar.
