Would you like to participate in this virtual roundtable?

Thursday 14 July 2022

15:30 – 17:00 BST (MS Teams)

Organisations are increasingly committing to sustainability to achieve their business goals, build the public’s trust and attract purpose-minded employees.

Sustainable business strategies focus on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues, commonly addressing environmental responsibility, human rights, fair working conditions, and diversity and inclusion. In this context, our next roundtable will explore the implications of sustainability strategies for jobs, skills and careers.

Our guest provocateur and topic

We’ve invited Cath Jowers, Group Head of Talent and Leadership Development at Anglo American to be our provocateur for this topic. Sustainability is a business priority for Anglo American. Cath will highlight the opportunities and challenges that sustainability has created for the People Function and how their response is keeping them ahead of the curve.

Cath will share stories to explain:

  • The importance of partnership internally and externally, both to identify what is needed to change and to develop their policy and approach
  • How they address employee expectations
  • What she’s proud of, drawing on examples from across the employee lifecycle

You will have the chance to share reactions and questions with Cath, and discuss your own situation, experience, and areas of interest. Our aim is that you take away insights and practical ideas that you can test in your organisation.
