Data privacy and trust in the workplace – is a profound shift underway?

02 July 2020

“It takes a lot to inform massive shifts in our thinking, ways we work, ways we live, ways we imagine our worlds. What it takes for that massive shift isn’t just technology, it is apparatus and systems sitting around that to make it appear trustworthy and safe.” Genevieve Bell Director 3Ai, VP and Senior Fellow at Intel

Lewis Silkin’s Future of Work Hub, in collaboration with the RSA held a panel discussion Data privacy and trust in the workplace – is a profound shift underway? as part of our Economies of Trust series. We were delighted to be joined by Genevieve Bell, Director 3Ai and VP & Senior Fellow at Intel; Fabian Wallace-Stephens, Future Work Centre Senior Researcher, RSA; Sean O’Riordan, Legal and Data Privacy Counsel, Zebra Technologies, Alex Milner-Smith, Partner, Lewis Silkin and Steph Hamill, Experience Division, Partner, Consulting at Capita.

The aim of this series is to bring people together to discuss the implications of Covid-19 on the future of work.  In this discussion, we considered the changing nature of trust and how the pandemic is shaping attitudes towards data privacy as society makes significant trade-offs between established freedoms and safety. 

Below we have drawn together some of the key trends and perspectives shared in the discussion.
