Our Workplace Innovation event is a unique two-day virtual conference and exhibition exploring how new innovations and technologies are redefining the future of work and the workplace.

Inspired by our WORKTECH Guide to Workplace Innovation, this event will explore the latest thinking that can help your organisation attract and retain talent, and adopt a position at the forefront of workplace transformation. In an increasingly competitive business world, staying up to date with the latest trends and best practice has never been more important. But merely keeping pace is the minimum that companies need to do to remain truly relevant, attractive to top talent and ultimately, profitable. The most successful companies are those that are consistently innovative; constantly finding ways to solve new challenges and looking at how to improve what they do. For these companies, perfection is never an end state, but a constant journey.

The Workplace Innovation event will share new global case studies and offer insight into the latest thinking around cutting-edge technologies and innovative solutions such as Robotics, AR & VR, data and analytics, AI, personalisation tools, collaboration enablers and much more. Attendees will learn how the latest workplace innovations can help organisations future-proof workplace strategies and stay ahead in a competitive and uncertain business world.

Featured Keynote

The Silo Effect

An interview with Gillian Tett, Award-winning Journalist and Editor-at-Large of the Financial Times

Gillian Tett joins us to share insights from The Silo Effect and her upcoming book Anthro-Vision, examining how our tendency to create functional departments – silos – hinders our work. In an age when technology, big data, and financial analysis defines business decision-making, Gillian presents a different idea: businesses can revolutionize their understanding of human behavior by studying consumers and organizations through an anthropological lens. By making the familiar seem unfamiliar and vice versa, she offers a three-dimensional perspective in a world where many executives are plagued by tunnel vision.

Coming Soon

WORKTECH Guide to Workplace Innovation

It includes detailed descriptions of the most significant workplace innovations spanning everything from robots and intelligent mail to biophilia and wellness, providing the knowledge you need to futureproof your workplace.
