Company Culture Part 1: The future of team engagement

Topping the list of priorities for Peer To Peer Network members this year is improving and managing the culture within their company. In this interactive ‘roll up your sleeves’ workshop, we will get down to deep discussions on the business of articulating and entrenching a clear ‘company attitude and decision-making system’. Culture is the ’Buy-In’ glue that holds a team together no matter what the day or week brings. Join in and leave with clarity, tools and renewed energy as you head into your hiring season.

February 13, Lamplighter Inn, London
Company Culture Part 2: A Culture of Safety and Wellness

There is in our midst a paradigm shift of attitudes between devotion to work and devotion to life and family. The cutting edge trends include connecting with your team, and developing a collaborative balance between the needs of the company, and the needs of its’ employees. Join us for this day of important discussions centred around the new pressures on business owners to adapt their HR management concepts and schedules to fit with different attitudes toward work and wellness.
