A year into lockdown, more and more people have started new roles without ever having met a colleague face-to-face. In this week's episode of The Good Practice Podcast, we find out what that's like for people professionals.

To discuss, Ross G is joined by Emerald Works CEO John Yates, Frontline Pedagogy Lead Laura Watkin, and Study Group HRD Ed Griffin. Our guests all have different roles in different organisations, but one thing in common: they're working with strangers.

We discuss:

  • their experiences of joining an organisation during lockdown
  • the challenges of these experiences
  • the surprising benefits of of not meeting anyone face-to-face.
