Hybrid Work | The Belonging Imperative

28 October 2021

Online 11am - 12pm AEDT

Hybrid work has reshaped workplaces in Australia and New Zealand for good.

Work is no longer defined by where people gather – it’s about how connected we feel. When the “workplace” is everywhere, leaders must uncover new ways to nurture meaningful connections across their organisations and satisfy our collective desire to belong.

Join Australia’s foremost business leaders at the TEDxSydney Salon on Hybrid Work, sponsored by Microsoft and hosted by Fenella Kernebone, Head of Curation, TEDxSydney.

During our Salon we will attempt to unravel some of the greatest business leadership challenges of today with inspiring talks and interactive Q+As with Stan Grant, Sam Mostyn, Tim Dean, Tom Harkin and Mark Mortensen.

Thursday 28 October 2021

11am – 12pm AEDT

Online | Free



What will we explore during the event?

The hybrid reality: Why ‘belonging’ is so important for attracting, retaining and engaging talent in the new world of work.

Building tribes, not tribalism: How to nurture an inclusive culture and avoid pitfalls like ‘moral tribes’ as workplace banter goes online.

The economic value of care: How Australia can unlock new, diverse talent pools by strengthening the Care Economy. 

Authentic leadership: How leaders can move beyond roles and titles and foster the genuine human connections they need to guide their organisations through times of heightened change.

Doing hybrid right: Making the most of flexible and remote working without compromising collaboration, wellbeing, and business outcomes.
