I really enjoyed the opportunity to Programme lead the Opening Plenary session of the CHS Alliances’s Humanitarian HR Conference HHR2020 as part of the MYT team. It meant I was able to listen into an inspiring keynote speech from Andrea Vogel, the Former International Head of HR at the British Red Cross. Andrea talked about Agile HR in Practice and what it means for Employee Wellbeing. It was wonderful to listen in to her experiences and approach such as defining jobs by outcomes and deliverables, not departments and also her recommendation to take a holistic approach to employee wellbeing with the below framework:
I also really like this Tweet from CHS Alliance with its focus on employee resilience, so important in these challenging Covid times:

We need to ensure our employees are resilient in the face of change. Staff #wellbeing is central to this as we build a culture of agility.
