The CIPD is proud to be part of ‘The Future of Work’, a new programme by ITN Business exploring the evolution of work, featuring key industry and news-style reports, along with sponsored editorial profiles. 

CIPD chief executive Peter Cheese joins CEO of The ScaleUp Institute Irene Graham OBE, and Director of the Oxford Institute of Population Ageing Professor Sarah Harper CBE, to discuss the current work landscape and what we can expect in the coming years. 

As part of a panel discussion, Peter speaks to journalist and presenter Duncan Golestani on flexible working, including the four-day week, office spaces and benefits to employee wellbeing.

“I’ve always said the future of work is human. We need to really put people front and centre in this debate and make sure we’re creating future work which is good for people, and helps them to thrive.”
