Julie Vens - De Vos nexxworks

In an ever faster-evolving world, the need for organizations to reflect on their way of working and organizational structures is stronger than ever. How do companies engage remote teams? How do you organize for change? How do they find and keep the best talent? Which are the best training methods? just as challenging as they are fantastic opportunities to become a human-centric organization.

That’s why we want to show you some of the most unique company stories and inspiring visions in the exciting world of work. Here’s what will be covered:

For who is this program?

This program is designed for those who have an active role in the leadership team and are a decision-maker in the organizational design.

1. How to act upon the post-Covid atmosphere at work? 

How to act upon the post-Covid atmosphere at work? We just had the biggest disruption at the workplace for decades: The Covid-19 pandemic, which made so many people work from home. This combined with an ongoing war for talent, requesting diversified job offers for freelancers, and people working from anywhere anytime. This raises the question of whether we are ever going back to normal or whether this will be the next never normal and how to act upon this new reality as a leader?

The question is no longer: will we return to the office? But more:

  • What implications has the disruption by the pandemic on our company culture?  

  • What’s the company culture of the future?  

  • How do you engage teams when they are working from home?  

  • How can we act as relevant leaders in such an environment?   

  • How does it influence collaborations between colleagues? 

  • Should you make a difference between fixed contracts and contractors that are part of your ecosystem? 

  • How to make sure working from home is not a distinguishing feature between workers? 

  • Why would women return faster to the office?  

  • What implications do our new habits have on HR, payments & evaluations?  

  • And how important are social relations with our colleagues really?  

  • Is work a place where we just earn money or did Covid-19 clarify our relationship with work?

2. How to organize work and change in a constantly changing world? 

We’ve been talking for many years about self-steering teams, agility, and putting the human at the center of our organizations - Gary Hamel and Michele Zanini call this “humanocracy. But what do companies need to change to this human-centered model without losing efficiency? We’ll tackle different questions to help you better organize work and change in your company.

  • Again, what is the impact of humanocracy on HR?  

  • What does it imply for leaders being accountable for self-steering teams 

  • How do we organize decision-making and change management?  

  • How do we form teams?  

  • How do we stay organized around the customer? 

  • And how do we keep questioning the status quo of our organigram?

3. Why should companies embed social themes in the organization? 

The ESG (environmental, social, governmental) criteria, diversity & inclusion are topics were a lot of people want to make commitments. But what does it mean for my organization?

  • How can companies do more? What are the struggles we are facing to really make advancements? 

  • Purpose vs. Paycheck: How does it help to attract new hires in this war for talent?

4. How can technology help us work and feel better? 

Additionally, as we hand over more tasks to technology, how do we define our human talents? Thought leader Heather McGowan predicted we have entered the human capital era, which she describes as an era in which we realize that humans are assets to develop rather than costs to contain—a profound shift in how we think about work and learning. On the one hand, this brings us to the topic of skills and the need for replacement of the term low-skilled jobs to low-opportunity jobs.

  • What type of work will we continue to do (creative, knowledge,…)? And what skills do our companies need for change? 

  • How can we shift low-opportunity jobs to jobs where people are trained, and bring ideas in a safe place with opportunities to grow?  

  • How can people get reskilled or upskilled whilst making this pleasant for both parties? 

  • What new ways of learning should be implemented to make learning more attractive?  

On the other hand, how can we make use of new technology as efficiently as our computers to make work better? 

  • How can data gathered by different (HR) tools be used in a more useful way? 

  • How can technology help us to become ‘augmented workers’ 

This is what you go home with:

  • Fresh ideas concerning the structure of your company 

  • Motivation to change the way we work and learn 

  • A network of peers you can use as sparring partners 

  • Concrete to do’s for your organization 

What can you expect - format? 

  • A pre-track where you’ll get to know the other participants before we leave 

  • An eye-opening 5-day learning experience in the Netherlands, home of the Future of Work 

  • Ongoing post-tour inspiration via your nexxworks’ alumni membership 

We’re still cooking up this awesome program. Companies and speakers will be added to this program in the near future. Many examples of companies that are already experimenting with new ways of working like Buurtzorg & Viisi, but also Randstadt, ING, and many more!
