Please note: when you book for this event to be held at The Guardian offices, the MRG will need to supply your name to The Guardian for the door list.
1. The Guardian: the Future of the Workforce. Understanding today's jobseekers in the UK, differences across the generations and attitudes and requirements when looking for a new job opportunity. The Guardian has identified the key values and benefits that drive job applications - Flexible working and working from home are likely to become the key consideration when searching for jobs, just after the salary and location.
2. Nic Newman, Senior Research Associate at the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism will talk about recent research into news podcasts and the opportunities for publishers. Based on interviews with 35 leading publishers in five countries (UK, US, France, Australia and Sweden) it assesses the current state of the market and the commercial and creative possibilities. It looks in detail at the growth of daily news podcasting, the different lengths of successful podcasts and at the staffing mix for different kinds of media companies.
3. The Behaviour Business: how the changing nature of work makes understanding behaviour essential to business success. Richard Chataway will share insights from the research and interviews conducted for his new book on how behavioural science helps businesses deliver better digital products and services, and effectively use automation/AI, to succeed in the rapidly changing 21st century workplace. Speaker: Richard Chataway, VP of BVA Nudge Unit UK, board member of the Association for Business Psychology and author of ’The Behaviour Business’.
