Dr Edwin Trevor-Roberts
Join the Griffith Business School Alumni Network for breakfast and hear from an expert on career fulfillment in an uncertain world.
Our world of work operates in a state of unpredictability and transformation. Organisations can no longer promise certainty about what the future will hold and both individuals and organisations must be adaptable and flexible to meet the opportunities ahead.
This constant state of flux, however, is challenging for staff engagement, workforce planning and retention as individuals struggle to find meaning and connection in their work.
What we need is a radical rethink of how we view "work' and what it means to us.
This dynamic presentation will explore:
• How work has evolved to what it is today and the trends that are shaping the nature of work.
• The different perspectives of what work means to people.
• What career success is, and how to find it.
• How to motivate others by helping them find meaning in their work.
