Universities and colleges are complex organisations - in many ways quite different to other businesses in sectors such as finance, insurance and technology. With their mix of students, academics, researchers and professional services staff, there are a many needs to be met.

So how are they managing after 2 years of the COVID pandemic, where many more people started working away from their offices and students and lecturers began a journey of online learning? Many academics and researchers were already working in flexible ways before March 2020, but professional services much less so. Where are they now?

Here's a quick overview of the discussion points in this episode:

  • A renewed emphasis on staff learning, development and benefits (04:16)
  • A game of two halves - professional services / academics and researchers (13:02)
  • Going global to reach the best talent (19:36)
  • Co-creating work experiences (28:03)
