Keynote – Whole Person Approach to Creating Digital Employee Experiences

Much has been discussed about the shift to more flexible, hybrid workplaces as office-based workers were abruptly pushed to work from home in the midst of Covid-19 lockdowns. But, what about the “deskless” workers - many of whom are the essential workers who have staffed the frontline keeping us safe, healthy, fed and productive?

  • Humanity is more important than ever - reshaping and reimagining how we can make work more human for the whole workforce
  • How designing workforce experiences and leveraging digital will set your organization up to accelerate in 2021 and beyond

After a life-changing injury that left her paralysed from the chest down, Sam was left bereft and hopeless until ‘Penguin' (the injured baby magpie that the family took in) entered her life.
