PICAN - The Future of People – Building your foundation to ensure you have a long and healthy career, 14 August 2019 (PM)

The ‘future of work’ is often mentioned in reference to the change technology will bring to the workplace and the changing face of the workforce. Although this is true for many organisations, the ‘future of people’ is equally important. Whether you are in practice, a public benefit entity or a commercial operation, we would all agree that our people are our most significant assets. The focus on wellbeing and mindfulness in the workplace has gained importance, not only as we become time poor but also because we have become more aware of the pressure / toll our work can take on our mental wellbeing. Being able to identify and deal with triggers of workplace stress is an important part of ensuring you understand what levers you have also to manage this. This in turn will lead to greater work / life reward and help ensure you have a long and healthy career.

Come join us as we have a line-up of great speakers that will provide invaluable insight and practical tips on how we as people can offer the best version of ourselves to our work and the people within it.
