Work and workplaces are crucial to creating sustainable innovation and growth.  Inclusive and engaging workplaces provide staff with good quality jobs that utilise their skills and develop their talents effectively enabling these staff, in turn, to deliver high levels of performance and future innovation.

This interactive seminar is intended for everyone who has an existing organisational commitment to changing workplace practices and culture. Participants who attended the introductory seminar on Workplace Innovation and would like to continue the discussions, follow-up on insights and discuss experiences in their own workplace are also more than welcome.

What will you learn in this course:
The programme begins with a working dinner and introductions on the 23rd, followed by two full days when we will address:

After course support
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).

The Diagnostic is available to course participants at a specially discounted rate of €3,000 for up to 2,000 members of staff. For more information please visit www.workplaceinnovation.eu/The-Essential-Fifth-Element-Diagnostic or contact peter.totterdill@workplaceinnovation.net.
