Thriving in the Digital-First Workplace

5th July 2022, Europe 10:30 - 12:00 BST

Is your organisation still debating “remote versus office?” The future of work isn’t either/or—it’s both.

For many employees around the world, work is now a digital-first experience. One that’s augmented by the physical workplace, but no longer tethered to it. This is causing a growing disconnect between employee expectations and their day-to-day experiences, and it’s having a huge impact on employee satisfaction.

Leading organisations are rethinking the employee experience from the ground up. No longer thinking in terms of where work happens, but how work happens, intentionally building and nurturing culture in a digital-first work environment. This is enabling leaders to maximise diversity and inclusion opportunities, overcome talent retention and attraction challenges, and experience less proximity bias – which the BBC describes as “an unconscious – and unwise – tendency to give preferential treatment to those in our immediate vicinity.” In fact, proximity bias is now executives’ number-one concern with respect to flexible work. According to findings from Slack, 41% of executives cite the potential for inequities to develop between remote and in-office employees as their top concern.

Join thought leaders from Slack, along with a select group of your peers, as we discuss strategies to create an inclusive, fulfilling employee experience and avoid some common blockers to establishing your digital headquarters, so your organisation can thrive in a digital-first future.
