Shaw believes that, as health and safety policies evolve, “the workplace of the future is going to be a very different place” from those we recognize today.

“We’ve got a generation coming into our workplaces who simply aren’t going to put up with any garbage, and they can tell if you’re being genuine or not,” Shaw said.

“It’s a time when leaders are going to have to be putting organizational culture first, so they’re going to be using cultures of organizations in order to attract people, because that’s where people are going to want to go.”
