Freedom, purpose, and work-life balance is the new mantra that everyone is chanting and the startups are listening. Workplace wellbeing and flexibility are winning against the great resignation.
But how exactly can one cultivate this culture and remain attractive in this new reality? How can one prevent employee churn and instead, foster, a culture of loyalty?
To find out the answer to these burning questions, we have invited Nicolas Blier-Silvestri, CEO of Platypus, Lona Alia, Head of Revenue in SafetyWing, Josh Ash, Sales Lead in Humaans, and Thea Bramming, an experienced organizational culture consultant for companies like Microsoft and Too Good To Go.
The event will take palace on February 24th, 5 pm EET.
