Future of Work innovation sprint

5 Sep 2019
Sustainable Business Council

On 3 September SBC hosted an second innovation sprint on the Future of Work. The sprint brought together a group of SBC members and thought leaders all committed to a positive, inclusive and sustainable Future of Work.

Four groups explored experiments within the five areas of focus identified in Sprint #1:

Purpose & identity: Building purpose-driven organisations and workplace cultures that foster belonging and authentic human connection.

Learning: The need for more sophisticated workforce development planning, given the impacts of technology on skills, roles and tasks, and for lifelong learning that inspires, empowers and motivates beyond the workplace.

Diversity, inclusion & belonging: how do we open up more human-centric workplaces, that embrace diversity, inclusivity and equality, and align businesses to the Wellbeing Budget 2019?

No one left behind: Tackling growing inequalities, marginalisation and exclusion. How do we develop cultural competencies, capabilities to bring diversity into workplace models, practices and thinking.

New economic models: Ensuring systemic conditions support human and environmental wellbeing at an enterprise level, and remuneration systems at a societal level reflect broader wellbeing value as well as economic value creating more equality and equity.

These videos are pitches which outline four proposed experiments to be codesigned and prototyped by the end of 2019, to enable collective action across the SBC network in 2020.

If you would like to participate in any of these experiments or would like more information, please contact Robert Perry rperry@businessnz.org.nz.
