The Workplace in 10 Years’ Time
The primary stage for the event.
Jan 23 9:30AM–10:00AM GMT · Session
The Great Resignation—What is it? Why is it? And will it ever go away?
The Great Resignation is upon us whether we want it to be or not. So let’s know what it is and why it is.
Jan 23 1:00PM–4:00PM GMT · Session
Why was the pandemic the trigger?
Almost all the ingredients had already been added to the pot for disaster before the pandemic. Why did the pandemic cause this pot to finally boil over?
Jan 24 9:30AM–11:30AM GMT · Session
Systemic issues in employment that must be faced
We now take a look at those “ingredients for disaster” with an eye on how to solve them.
Jan 24 12:30PM–4:30PM GMT · Session
Diversity & Inclusion
The tumultuous year of 2020 shone a light on underlying injustices that sparked the feeling of exclusivity for many. Great Resignation or not, D&I must be topmost in every manager’s mind for a happy and productive workplace.
Jan 25 9:30AM–11:30AM GMT · Session
Startups, the corporate ladder, and feelings of nepotism
Do Gen-Zers prefer working in startups because they offer a faster rise to the top than climbing a corporate ladder? Do employees feel that there is still some degree of nepotism and “old school tie” preferential treatment in workplaces?
Jan 25 1:00PM–4:30PM GMT · Session
King of the mountain or living happily with the herd? A talk on leadership.
Not everyone was born to lead, and that’s okay. What’s most important is to not make employees feel like they have no rights because they aren’t in a managerial role.
Jan 26 9:30AM–12:30PM GMT · Session
Flexi-Hours and WFH
Still a hot question. And it’s a key factor in dealing with the Great Resignation
Jan 26 1:30PM–4:30PM GMT · Session
Loyalty
How do you build real loyalty? Are you, as a leader, willing to give the same amount in return?
Jan 27 9:30AM–12:30PM GMT · Session
Is the nine-to-five grind simply too boring for Gen-Z?
Gen-Zers form a large part of the cohort partaking in the Great Resignation. Is the traditional nine-to-five workday simply outdated in this modern world?
Jan 27 1:30PM–4:30PM GMT · Session
