Hybrid working, remote working, smart working – whatever we call it, the notion of the traditional five day office week has been challenged across desk-based industries since the widespread adoption of mobile computing. Employers are increasingly offering the opportunity to work from wherever their employees feel most productive.
This shift from traditional office-based City life to that of a hybrid working model lands the London Market in uncharted territory. It presents both an unprecedented opportunity, and an imposing threat to the long-held position of London at the front of the global insurance stage.
This report examines these outcomes through the lens of learning and development, exploring the impacts – both positive and negative – felt by professionals within the London Market to date, as well as considering how any drawbacks can be overcome and improvements can be maximised.
