Reflections on 20 years in business ethics: given Covid-19 where are we now?

Companies have been on a steep learning curve in 2020 – from adapting to survive to re-imagining the workplace. Some have fared better, perhaps due to the sector they are in versus others, or by their approach. Management has been tested, just as have supply chains, all set against dealing with the complexity of Covid.

Philippa will lead an open discussion on these and other issues as an introduction to 3 breakout sessions to look at:

1. How will companies draw up the employment model of future without losing the corporate culture?

2. What is the role of investors in monitoring corporate culture?

3. The fragility of many supply chain models has been exposed, so what next?
