Asif Sadiq has had a long career working in business to make companies more diverse and inclusive. After a year of remote working, he believes that companies which have embraced change are more ready to adapt to new challenges. Asif says he’s learnt more about colleagues’ lives during the past year, and thinks this process of ‘bringing your authentic self to work’ will and should continue. He also believes companies should make talking about mental health as common as talking about physical exercise, with the same benefits. The next big challenge on the horizon? Managing the anxieties about returning to work and changing the way we work now.
