The coronavirus pandemic has become an accelerator for one of the greatest workplace transformations in our lifetime – with millions of people across Britain now working exclusively from their homes while juggling home schooling and multiple Zoom calls.

This conversion to remote working has had a major impact on the construction industry and the way employees engage both internally and externally.

As part of the new and virtual CC Live series, Perfect Circle will be sharing insights on how this new normal way of working has had to evolve to keep employees engaged and ensure productivity is maintained, while also reassuring clients and stakeholders.

CC Live, hosted by Cartwright Communications, is a series of webcasts or ‘webisodes’ designed to help everyone stay connected. They are short, snappy and informative broadcasts, professionally produced and presented by former TV presenters.

Each episode features conversations with industry leaders from a variety of sectors – followed by a live Q&A session – as everyone works through the coronavirus pandemic and beyond.
