Welcome to the Workplace Geeks podcast
We explore workplace research from around the globe with the teams behind it. We discuss the methodology and challenges as well as deep diving into the findings.
In this extra special bonus episode, Chris and Ian are joined by the original podcast ponderer, the inimitable and elusive Dr James Pinder, to look back on their most memorable topics and discussions from Workplace Geeks season two.All Workplace Geeks guests are equal - it goes without saying - but special props in this episode to Dr Dan Wakelin from HCG, Dr Ben Waber from Humanyze, Dr Kerstin Sailer from UCL, Gabriella Braun, Josh Artus from Centric Lab, and Sophe Schuller and Rachel Cassanova from Cushman & Wakefield. 🙌🏼
We're pleased to announce that on the 20 April, we'll be hosting our very first Audiem event. A chance to get a full view of the platform, understand the thinking behind it and see some of the ways that organisations are using it. We'll even throw in a case study from some of the largest tech companies on the planet.
Workplace experiences ebb and flow. They are rich and complex. While they might seek to cater for diverse and wide-ranging groups, they are individually and often very personally felt. They are shaped over time, yet can be transformed – from delight to disgust, or vice versa – in an instant. And they are typically subtle and nuanced – not only positive and negative, but often ambivalent too.
if the focus of the 1980s was on business ‘excellence’ in terms of performance and efficiency, perhaps the most important organisational pre-occupation of the post-pandemic 2020s will concern something equally complex and elusive: workplace experience. Here we explore the challenges that come with it.
