Plenary I – The psychological contract
Aim: in recent months’ anxiety, resilience, loss of focus, remote work, loneliness, and upskilling are just a few of the issues on workers’ minds. But how do the younger generations view business? The term “great resignation” emerged in recent months as workers paused to rethink their lives and jobs in general, their sense of purpose redefined as a consequence of Covid restrictions. This session will explore the current state of the psychological contract.

  • Tina Kiefer, Professor of Organisational Behaviour, Warwick Business School, UK
  • Moderated by: Tim Wray, Director of Executive Education, University of Warwick, Warwick Business School, UK

16:00 – 17:00

Plenary II – Exploring the consequences: a global perspective
Aim: what effect will this evolving psychological contract have on organisations? Is ‘the great resignation’ and its organisational complement, ‘the war for talent,’ a global challenge or rather a selective European and/or Anglo-Saxon view on reality?
This panel will continue to debate the various challenges presented in the previous plenary session with several international client perspectives. They will examine how each organisation is dealing with the issues and whether they are becoming a problem.
