As a society we’re starting to grasp that we are strongly social, inter-dependent, woven into nature, complex, diverse and both fragile and resilient.
The upside of Covid is the time it’s brought us for quiet contemplation and the opportunity to try new ways to achieve better outcomes.
But if there is a single theme that came strongly through at our event, Back to My Happy Healthy Workplace, it was diversity.
Employers are starting to grasp that a creative approach that respects diversity can drive better productivity and better outcomes for all.
A second big theme is the long and growing arm of responsibility. Does employer rhetoric match the actions? Staff, shareholders and other stakeholders are watching. If you’ve got staff working at home, are they safe, physically and psychologically?
The exciting thing is that the more we allow positive values to flourish the faster our quality of life improves, alongside productivity.
This is a great ebook, with inspiring messages and ideas for tools to make our workplaces – and lives – better.
