11 October 2021 |5:30 pm - 6:00 pm BST

David Blackburn

Special Guest: David Blackburn: Chief People Officer, Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS)

Since COVID-19, and the economic and social fallout which has followed, companies have been forced to re-engineer their organisations overnight. This instantaneous shift has led to increased expectations for flexible hybrid working, a greater demand for career development and a new focus on employee experience – so how do you ensure that you’re building a really great place to work? In this interactive and practical session David Blackburn – Chief People Officer of the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) – will share the FSCS’s multi-award-winning journey to build back better. Against the backdrop of last year how they drove significant improvements in business performance, customer satisfaction and employee experience to be recognised as the Engage Awards Great Place to Work 2020.
