Will there really be a 'new normal'?

Will there really be a 'new normal'?


We have heard a lot about ‘the next or new normal’, everyone seems to have an opinion about what work will look like as a result of COVID-19, but are we being too idealistic to believe that people will change so drastically from the normal we are used to?

If behavioural science teaches us anything, it’s that humans are creatures of habit; we don’t like change and often won’t change… therefore, is the ‘new normal’ just an experience that we’re accepting until a vaccine is found and the world returns to the ‘old normal’ that we’re used to?

As HR Leaders, we are uniquely positioned to use this time for embedding change in our workplace, but to what extent? What are the specific new behaviours we want to stick with in the future?

Speaker: Peter Bragge, Director of Health Programs, BehaviourWorks Australia

Peter manages partnerships with a number of government and other agencies including WorkSafe Victoria, the Department of Premier and Cabinet & Department of Health and Human Services. His key areas of expertise are applied behaviour change research and undertaking rapid evidence reviews for government and industry.

Peter is leading Monash Sustainable Development Institute’s collaboration with McMaster University in Canada to build the world’s largest evidence resource for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – Social Systems Evidence (SSE).

He recently published his first book, From Roadside to Recovery: The Story of the Victorian State Trauma System, has written over 80 reports for government and has published over 60 peer-reviewed journal articles.
