The Agile Working Event

The Event

Learn how agile working continues to change the management of teams, employee flexibility and organisational culture using technology to empower and optimise business performance

The way in which we work is changing, but what does that mean for your business? Millennial’s now make up 25% of the entire population in the UK and they expect agile working; unified communications, video calling, flexible working, the Cloud and everything in between.

Agile working is no longer an employee benefit, it’s a necessity to attract and retain the best staff, it aids internally communication and employee engagement and it can provide a huge upturn in employee wellbeing. Agile working is now a board level concern, and the Agile Working event will welcome the UK’s most forward thinking employers and minds to inspire new thinking, challenge assumptions and play a vital role in integrating agile working into day-to-day operations.

The use of technology within business is rising, but many organisations are unaware as to the solutions available to them and what it can mean for their business. Not only will you hear from technology solution providers who can help you on this journey, but you will hear from and meet organisations large and small who have implemented their own agile working strategy and the huge upturn it has had on employee output and the overarching benefits of agile working for business.

The Agile Working Event will provide you with some key takeaways wherever you are in your own agile working journey and arm you with a toolbox of ideas ready to take back and implement within your business. The Event will include a programme of influential speakers, debating panels, workshops and networking sessions where delegates can ask questions, exchange ideas and share experiences on a subject that has the potential to disrupt the world of work…. Forever.
