This week, Colin talks to James Pomeroy, the group health safety environment and security director at Lloyd's Register, to discuss the ways in which COVID has changed our lives and our society - in some ways for the better.
- Trust is a huge factor in every business sector, but even more so in the wake of COVID, where business owners are now trusting their people to work in a variety of new environments.
- As businesses, we often try to impose one-size-fits-all solutions, when in reality, we should be more comfortable with letting individuals be safe on their own terms, and to be more forward thinking.
- Businesses are transforming for the better in the wake of COVID, moving more online and to remote methods. This is also changing individuals for the better.
- The important things in life are not chasing the extra dollar here and there, but the family we leave in order to do it. We should embrace what's real and stop to reflect on the many gifts in life.
'Work in a framework, but let people get on with it'
'Good performance doesn't always mean working nine to five. Good performance is in the results'
'You've got to give people space'
'We need to question why we're standardising versus why we're not encouraging innovation'
