Breakfast Briefing: Workplace Transformation beyond Covid-19

Breakfast Briefing: Hosted by Fujitsu and Scottish Financial Enterprise featuring guests from NatWest, TSB and Burness Paull

Workplace Transformation and Accelerating Technology Innovation & Adoption: Looking beyond the immediate response demanded by the COVID-19 pandemic


We are sorry you missed our live session, but you can still access the recording.

Forced innovation has become one of economic necessity during the crises we have all faced in these last few months. Businesses everywhere were suddenly faced with a challenge of unprecedented scale and pace with people mobilised to work differently and bureaucracy cut out of necessity. As our focus now shifts towards longer-term survival, continuity and resilience, how do we continue to meet and the challenge of innovation and implementation in this new world?

Featuring an interactive panel discussion with insight from NatWest, TSB and Burness Paull, as well as Fujitsu's Ian Bradbury, himself a renowned thought leader in Financial Services workplace transformation, this is a session worth a watch. Highlights include discussions around humans & bots working together, the rapid retraining of branch staff to support bank wide activities (e.g. webchat), the need for maintaining customer trust and credibility, and the cultural change that has allowed for rapid action. The panel discuss how can we quickly reconfigure our business to support rapidly changing events and the devolution / decentralisation of decision making, whilst acknowledging a need for a strong continuing focus on risk management and compliance.
