Being Human at Work (en)
Maybe it`s time we started being curious about each other's humanity at work?
We hear a lot that in order to create great digital customer experiences, we have to be curious about our customers - that this curiosity will lead us in the right direction. But what about the people around us, with whom we are co-creating those customer experiences? What about our own colleagues? Maybe it`s time we started being curious about each other's humanity at work, too.
TEDx and SXSW keynote speaker, social entrepreneur, and human rights advocate Jessica Shortall will close Webdagene 2017 with a talk about the simple and complicated task of Being Human at Work. On many dimensions - gender, family, identity, health - workers are expected to leave their humanity at home. This approach hurts morale, productivity, and innovation - and it's simply unsustainable. With case studies, data, and real stories, Jessica will talk about what happens when humanity is shoved out of the workplace - and all the good that can happen when workplaces are fully human.
See Jessica talk on Friday.
