Prioritising People: Supporting Diverse Teams in the New Era of Work

Opening Keynote

Leading the Remote Workforce: The Neuroscience Behind How We Handle a Changing Work Environment

The widespread adoption of remote work has fundamentally changed how we connect, work and use technologies (often not yet fit for purpose), in an ever-changing environment. Understanding the neuroscience of human connection can help us build positive remote and hybrid workplaces that fosters trust, commitment and resilience, and leverage technology as a true enabler.

Expert Panel: Diversity & Inclusion in the Workplace

Diversity & Inclusion initiatives are no longer optional. Their impact on employee wellbeing, company culture and business performance make them a key component of a winning business strategy in which all employees feel valued and supported. This panel will address a range of issues relating to bias in the current world of work, including ways company leadership can respond to discrimination and move the needle on diversity in their organisations; how bias influences decision making, hiring and retention; and best practices for developing more inclusive workplaces to maximise team potential.

Chiswick Park Case Study: Fostering Healthy Communities

Based around the central idea that ‘if you enjoy work, you do better work and if you do better work, you have a better business,’ the Chiswick Park model has been leading the way in workplace wellbeing since its development. In this session, Chiswick Park’s CEO explores the importance of healthy workplace communities, work-life balance, and the concept of the ‘destination workplace’ in the post-COVID era, sharing insights on how this pioneering campus continues to foster culture, collaboration and community for its unique organisations in the new era of work.

Expert Panel: The Future of Experience & Amenities

In an effort to create the best experience possible for clients and employees, organisations are turning to technology to enhance their workplaces. Our panel of experts will discuss how best to unlock the potential of exceptional workplace experience, exploring factors such as environment, amenities and personalisation that play a key role in shaping the experience of work and re-defining the workplace as a safe and desirable destination to return to.

NETWORKING BREAK

The Workplace as a Healing Environment

Dr Katelyn Dowling believes that the future of work must involve healing as an explicit goal. This is more important now than ever as prevalence rates of depression have tripled since COVID-19. In a VUCA world (volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous), Katelyn argues that we must reimagine the role of the workplace in the fabric of society. People spend approx. ⅓ of their lives in the workplace, so work has the potential to be a key stressor or a source of healing. In this session, Katelyn will redefine “healing” as an umbrella term allowing for community resilience and stress reduction.
