    Lunchtime Takeout #1: Navigate uncertainty & ambiguity through the changing nature of work

    Enable yourself to dance with the ever changing nature of work...a kaleidoscope approach 

    The pandemic provides the perfect platform to transition to a reimagined future rather than 'returning back to normal'.  There is an opportunity to navigate challenges today in parallel with preparing for tomorrow, capitalising on today's disruption as a mechanism to plan for the sustainability and growth of the future.

    Join Tanya Hegarty from PwC as she discusses how organisations are approaching 'Future of Work Transformation' enabling employees to thrive rather than just survive. We will consider:

    • How are organisations approaching FOW transformation;
    • Balancing the business and individual needs of today parallel to planning for tomorrow;
    • Seizing the opportunity to proactively intersect people and technology in a holistic way;
    • Managing the risk of tackling the transactional elements of transformation and thinking that people will get there on their own;
    • Identify your role in managing your purpose, values and quality of your career experience.

    This is an opportunity to evolve and enable yourself to dance with the ever changing nature of work......a kaleidoscope approach.  There has never been a better time to invest in you! 

    Your facilitator:
