Course Introduction

For ten consecutive years now, economists around the world have measured declining people productivity which is creating a drag on business performance. The reasons for this are varied and complex, however, the COVID 19 crisis is emerging as a catalyst to fix these issues. Crises often knock us onto a different path, and some argue that when it comes to the workplace, the current crisis has changed the world of work forever, and for the better.

Changes in the way we work – where, when, how – have come quickly and will drive a more digital and integrated working experience. This workshop will give you the tools, models, and capabilities to get the right people, in the right place, at the right time, with the right skills and motivation to permanently improve workforce engagement and performance.  Solutions based on proven methods and tools by the world’s most successful companies.
