Spaces, Technology, and People: How the Digital Workplace Impacts Culture and Governance

Thursday, September 23, 2021

The workplace has become more connected than ever.

Change is happening at never-before-seen speeds.

You've probably even attended a couple of webinars with speakers talking about how these changes are affecting strategies, forecasts, and business growth.

But who's thinking of the people?

One of the most overlooked areas in digital transformation is corporate culture. Some may even think:

  • Now that the pandemic is wrapping up, won't the workplace just go back to normal?
  • Won't corporate culture just happen naturally?
  • Can't we just give people the latest technology and let the rest sort itself out?

But that's not you. You know it's not that easy.

Join us and our special guest, Digital Anthropologist Giles Crouch. He specializes in helping organizations analyze past trends to affect future change.

We'll cover topics like:

  • "Email Health Checks": How one email can impact corporate culture, how gossip and office politics happen in the digital workplace, and how to identify those most resistant to change.
  • "Corporate Governance": Why corporate by-laws need to be constantly updated for board directors, and how leaders can create sensible HR policies to deal with a digital world beyond just social media.
  • "Ethnography in the Digital Workplace": Gain actionable insights distilled from over a decade of Giles’ anthropological studies of the modern workplace. Before you start your next IT project or digital transformation, learn how you can leverage these findings to maximize employee buy-in, craft change management strategies and deploy with the highest chance of success.
