Special Guest: Helen Beedham: Author of The Future of Time: How ‘re-working’ time can help you boost productivity, diversity and wellbeing
Time is our most precious finite resource. So why does nearly every business fail to manage it strategically and value it appropriately?
Our working time has speeded up, become highly fragmented, and blurred into non-working time. We squander it in meetings, decision-making, inefficient processes and our cult of busyness. We reward 24/7 availability, speed of response and hours worked rather than results.
Rethinking our approach to how we manage working time can help us address the most pressing issues of the workplace: high stress and burnout; falling retention; stalling diversity. Individuals will flourish better in their careers and businesses will boost their bottom-line. It’s time for businesses to re-work time…
