Worldwide, companies are still struggling with gigantic employee dropout rates. Covid-19 has only further exacerbated our work crisis. It is time for a global performance review. Because how do you really put people first and do we jointly ensure a future of inclusive, holistic entrepreneurship?
In the theatrical talk ‘Robin’, we look at the future of work and employee happiness based on extensive research. What methods are currently being used or tested? Which methods work and what doesn’t work? How can we use extensive technological possibilities to provide more and more customization and empower employees? Is it really about employee happiness or amore about employee productivity? How far are we prepared to go for profit optimization?
Research into the future of work
For two years, the team behind Robin conducted research: they delved into scientific research about (the future of) work, followed trends in HR and workplace technology, visited various organizations and companies around the world to speak with HR managers, Chief Happiness Officers, AI experts and Vitality coaches. The insights they gained are bundled in Robin’s talk.
Not-your-average congress talk
Robin’s audience is a guest at a TedX-like theatrical talk by international HR expert Robin Sharp. The TedX format feels familiar to theater audiences as well as employees, HR managers and innovators from the business world. By using theatrical storytelling and beautiful visuals, however, we tell a much more vigorous story and we question established beliefs and systems.
Robin is suitable for a variety of locations and events. It is made as an alternative talk for (HR) conferences. And can, for example, be part of a program about burnouts, about the search for happiness or about technology at the workplace in debate centers, theaters or universities.
VALUE magazine ties in with the lecture performance Robin. Robin shows how we could use the latest technological possibilities to prevent employees from dropping out due to burnouts, bore outs and depression. But at the end of her talk Robin also wonders how far we are willing to go for profit optimization and whether alternatives are possible.
The magazine is a continuation of the lecture performance and elaborates on those alternatives. In the magazine, three millennials are envisioning a world in which values other than profit and growth are put central. How do we get there and how can we contribute?
Robin can be booked from autumn 2021. Interested in the possibilities?
