Exploring the future of work

The Festival of Work 2022 explored challenges that face your organisation, such as employee engagement and wellbeing, plus insights into learning, development, and skills. Over two days, the event helped attendees to explore the future of work and to create their action plan to make that a reality for your organisation.

Industry thought leaders spoke on how business and people strategy need to evolve to adapt to a new working environment. The Festival floor brought those ideas to life, allowing attendees to interact with the people and solutions to help create a better world of work.
