EP 14 - Building a great place to work

According to Mckinsey's latest report on post pandemic workplace trends, the COVID-19 crisis has supercharged transformations driven by automation and digitization, resulting in a corresponding skills shift. Everything that needed a change and was put to later now must be attended to. However, many realize that their organizations aren’t prepared for such a major shift.

While training and reskilling are essential and will act as the major levers to bridge the skills gap, a company needs to assess its culture and adjust its talent model as a whole to allow new talents to emerge, and innovate.

In this episode, Sophie chats with Tony Bond, the Executive Vice President and Chief Innovation Officer of Great Place to Work, the global authority on workplace culture. They discuss his personal journey, global trends post pandemic and practical ways to build a great workplace culture.
