Who can see your viewing activity?
That hiring trend is really good to see!
absolutely - we'll send all attendees the webinar recording
Are these figures forecast for 2021 or is this an increase on previous years?
FD's predictions for 2021
Great, thanks for clarifying.
This looks to be continuing the same trends with hiring in these sectors - infilling with temps/contractors for increased workload, but overall steady with perm hires and retention. Great!
Re team engagement - it must be such a sharp contrast for so many teams suddenly working remotely when they're usually such well-established and close-knit teams.
These are really promising responses!
Agreed very promising
Have you seen an increase in companies/firms hiring away from their normal office locations since Covid? Such as firms in Manchester hiring outside of their local area?
With regards to mental health. should we be honest with how it’s affecting us? I’m worried we will be frowned upon
some great questions coming through which we'll answer at the end. Keep them coming!
Lots of evidence that work/life balance and mental wellbeing are symbiotic.
Yes agreed how do we know the boundary of how open should we be about mental health and if we are struggling - could it be seen as a weakness ?
GREAT point Niala - it shouldn't be down to "time served" but "value added". If you want to progress, speak to management about what that path looks like.
"should be doing a whole webinar session on this" - yes please!!!
Solid handshake = "am I on mute?"
Thank you Matt, Niala and Sumaya as it looks like we're not just restricted to working locally or with a London firm anymore - GREAT NEWS !!
Hi 5 Kit :-)
Re mental health at work - see if your company has an EAP that you can utilise. Not all managers are comfortable talking about it yet, but there's a definite shift in the right direction. 2020 was challenging for so many people, it's not something that can be brushed under the rug!
thank you Kit!
You're welcome, Filiz. Best of luck in tackling this!

For mental wellbeing approach friends, family, professional experts in the field, as well as employers.
Well said, Niala.
completely agree Niala!
thank you Kit xx
Are companies investing more in experts that are equipped to handle 'mental health' issues - as we head into the unknown surely managers and not necessarily prepared for this . Are there more courses available for Management to attend to recognise dips in mental health ?

The Chartered Management Institute has been running a number of webinars for managers to help with mental wellbeing.
Thanks Colin - very helpful
That's really good to know, Colin - thanks!
Matt, Niala, Sumaya - thank you so much for your time and expertise. This has been really helpful.
