The Northern Housing Consortium has partnered with the GEM Programme to facilitate a series of bite-sized research pieces looking at Business Unusual – The Future of Work.

The research is written from the unique perspective of upcoming housing professionals, offering insight and views on the experience of younger employees around themes such as remote working, career development and mental health and wellbeing.

Geraldine Howley, Chair of GEM Programme, commented:

“This is an excellent piece of work reflecting the experiences and views of our upcoming housing professionals. The report offers a unique perspective on the impact of the pandemic on our younger employees, and gives us insight into how we can shape working life to meet the needs of our whole staff team. Working with the Northern Housing Consortium on this project has meant that we have been able to involve senior leaders from across the sector to shape, review and comment on the research, and I look forward to the outcomes of the next report.”
