Doyou want to improve the workplace for your colleagues and teams?
Three challenges are colliding leaders at once, that if tackled correctly can lead to your organisation as an attractive place to work for.
Firstly, a multi-generational workforce that has, in general, a vast mixture of expectations about what it wants from their employers.
Secondly, the ever-widening skills gap within certain IT and Technology disciplines. Whether that talent comes externally or internally, developing practices that support continuous learning will be vital in closing that gap for your organisation.
Finally, many now want more freedom to work wherever and however they want. The technology is largely there to support this. Instead, barriers are put up by cyber security and culture that need to be replaced by a prudent but pragmatic approach.
Join this workshop to gain valuable advice around tackling all of these challenges. You'll hear presentations from a range of fellow leaders, and get the opportunity to engage in group discussions and network with peers.
This workshop will be run under the Chatham House Rule. Catering will be provided throughout the day
What you will learn in this workshop:
- How to reduce churn and grow engagement across your team
- How to unify diverse teams
- How to keep your team continously learning
- How to cater to the growing desire for flexible working, while maintaining prudent but pragmatic cybersecurity practices
