Workplace Community: Reinforcing the Foundations to Create More Resilient Organisations

Image Component needs to be configured.

Organisations with thriving cultures are far more resilient in challenging and uncertain times. But what is it about these cultures that give them their strength? What is the foundation that supports them?

In a word, community.

In the workplace, community helps employees feel like they’re part of something bigger; that they belong and contribute to a shared purpose in meaningful ways. When there is a healthy workplace community, employees work together to make better decisions and are more committed to the organisation’s success.

Join Meghan Stettler, Director of the O.C. Tanner Institute, as she speaks with Alana Bennett, Human Experience Fanatic & Coach at Connected Experience and Gemma Saunders, Founder of Workplace Edit, about reinforcing the foundations of workplace community to create more resilient organisations.

In this session, you’ll learn about:

  • The eight elements of a strong workplace community
  • The drivers and derailers of connection
  • Creating trust and camaraderie in diverse teams
  • The power of recognition in building belonging
