Event Description

Workplace Innovation (WI) helps organisations and their employees to improve their performance and working lives by engaging the knowledge, skills and creativity of people at every level. This is an important principle in any size or type of organisation. WI occupies an important place in EU innovation and competitiveness policy within the Europe 2020 strategy. In 2013 the European Commission launched EUWIN (the European Workplace Innovation Network) and started a large-scale movement to create more productive and healthier places to work. 

How will it help you?
Over the course of two days, you will gain practical insights and actionable ideas condensed from the vast body of research and experience that exists in Europe. People implementing change in different organisations also benefit enormously from exchanging ideas and experiences of ‘what works’ and what doesn’t by sharing problems and solutions and by acting as ‘critical friends’ to one another.  

During this seminar you will discover how a growing number of companies and public organisations are transforming their working practices and cultures in ways that lead to real improvements in productivity, performance, engagement and well-being. You will have a unique opportunity to:

  • Examine the business case for Workplace Innovation as well as its impact on employee health and well-being
  • Explore core workplace practices that lead to high performance and high quality of working life
  • Identify international examples of good practice through short films and case studies
  • Hear from practitioners about their Workplace Innovation journeys
  • Evaluate current workplace practices in their own organisations and identify priorities for changeand improvement
  • Share ideas and experiences with each other
  • Discover Fresh Thinking Labs (, a rich database of learning resources, and receive a complimentary membership from 1 October 2017 to 31 January 2018.

Who will benefit most?
You are working in the public sector and would like to learn how to lead more effective teams and departments, improve efficiency and service quality, attract and retain the best talent and transform workplace practices and culture. You wish to enhance your leadership skills and enhance your ability to drive effective and sustainable change, whether at team level or across complex organisations.  Above all, you are committed to innovation and improvement and want to create a public sector organisation that is fit for the challenges of the 21st Century.
