Labour relations & your remote workforce: How to practice labour relations from a distance

What to expect

Covid-19 lockdowns have changed the way the world goes to work. Many companies will never go back to having their full workforce based at their offices. A hybrid model of working from home, with a central base for meetings or team interaction, will likely be the way of the future.

This is all well and good when things are going fine, but what happens when things go wrong? HR and IR managers will still have to comply with all labour relations legal requirements, policies, and processes, across a decentralised network and a scattered workforce. There is now more pressure than ever to digitise labour relations and get cases and processes on the cloud as quickly as possible, to maintain compliance.

In this webinar, industry experts will provide a playbook for how to practice labour relations from a distance. Nikita Reddy from the Bowmans Employment and Benefits team will advise on how to update and create labour relations policies and procedures for a scattered workforce. Then, Gary Slom, chief operating officer of erNavigator, will highlight the risks a company faces if they do not have remote-workforce-ready labour relations technologies in place.
​​​​Gary will then also outline the technology elements required to digitise labour relations cases and processes, so that compliance, consistency, and fairness can be maintained across a geographically scattered workforce. Finally, Khomotso Makapane from the Bowmans Employment and Benefits team, will provide tips and tricks for conducting an online disciplinary hearing.
