Event Description

Interactive workshop for “advanced” participants with an existing organisational commitment to changing workplace practices and culture. The programme begins with a working dinner and introductions on the 23rd, followed by two full days when we will address:

  • how workplace innovation transforms public sector organisations and services;
  • how well do we use the skills, experience and creativity of our staff?
  • practical approaches to workplace innovation;
  • redesigning services from the bottom up;
  • in-depth case study analysis;
  • making change happen – and making it stick!

On returning to your own workplaces, you will be invited to use The Essential Fifth Element Diagnostic – a staff survey focused on 62 evidence-based workplace practices associated with high performance and employee engagement – in your team, department or across the whole organisation. Diagnostic results include a practical action plan template.

If you take advantage of the Diagnostic you will also participate in a half-day follow-up interactive webinar to discuss resulting actions (mutually convenient date to be arranged).
