Humor That Works
 
The world has become obsessed with efficiency. Businesses are looking to do more with less, employees are scrambling just to keep up, and every human on the planet is “busy”. When employees proactively find ways to enjoy what they do, their productivity increases, engagement soars, and turnover drops. In this keynote, you’ll learn the mindset required to use humor and leave with actionable steps to implement immediately. Experience how to get better results by having more fun. Because people who use humor in the workplace are more productive, less stressed, and happier.

Workday talks about Future of Work
Nicolas Pingnelain, EMEA Innovation Speaker Workday
Because people are the most important resource in any organisation, human capital management (HCM) is essential in every enterprise. Changes in technology – from mobile devices to AI – are having a profound impact on how people work and interact and how medium and large organisations manage talent, retain employees, and execute quickly. During this Lunch & Learn session, Workday talks about skills becoming a key factor or driver in how people think about their workforce and how retraining the workforce as fast as possible is becoming a must for companies.
