Tuesday, November 15, 2022
Hear from four startups who are leading the charge in all areas of growth and retention! In this panel you will hear about remote-inclusive workforces, innovative approaches to add empathy and culture alignment in benefits packages, affordability, inclusive recruiting processes, accessibility and the important partnerships you build to support your team.
Work puts people in boxes labeled by job title. This siloing not only limits talent development, but also inhibits organizations from leveraging the full knowledge, skill sets, and innovation in their workforces. Only by unboxing humans, and tapping into what makes every individual unique (and weird!) can employees, managers, and organizations all win together. Danielle Boris, CEO and Founder of Sandbox will show leaders how to look beneath the surface of their team members to effectively leverage their talent. Through an interest-first approach, leaders walk away with practical tools to attract and retain great talent, turn unconscious bias into conscious action, and align the right people to the right work! Talent wants purposeful and fulfilling work, which is great news for leaders who know how to unbox their workforce.
In a world of quiet quitting, employee resignation, and major layoffs in a down market, it’s harder than ever to build workplaces where people trust each other, feel connected, and cultivate belonging within their organizations. In this interactive discussion, we'll review what's needed to foster trust and belonging individually, at the team level, and within the broader culture of an organization. We’ll also discuss what commonly gets in the way. You’ll leave the session with a few key skills to help managers build psychological safety and individuals adapt in fast-paced environments and advocate for more fulfilling and meaningful work.
After the pandemic, the vast majority of professionals expect remote work to be the new normal. Remote work has brought a myriad of possibilities to work culture including greater workforce diversity, access to a wider talent pool, flexible hours, reduced overhead, and lower employee turnover. However, it has also brought challenges including the risk of overworking and disproportionate work-life balance. Join our panel as we dive into how startups can help cultivate the future of work through remote, hybrid, or in-office outcomes that embrace inclusivity and promote mental and physical well-being.
