Great workplaces by Design [Panel]

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This session will have a break from 10:00 to 10:10.

Many have been unfortunate enough to experience what it’s like toiling in a bad workplace – but it doesn’t have to be this way… This panel will explore what makes a workplace great, and how to structure teams and enable effective communications to maximize efficiency in a way which is both professionally fulfilling and as stress free as possible for everyone. During the session there will be the opportunity to share things that have gone wrong in the workplace, and more importantly, gone right!
