The Human Factor: Capitalizing on Talent, Achieving Sustainability and Improving the Bottom Line

Time: March 24, Wednesday 15:30 - 17:00

In cooperation with Tomorrow's Company

For businesses today, creating value is dependent not only on economic but also environmental and social issues. The business case for employee engagement is clear - leaders and managers who inspire and engage their employees are more likely to realize the full potential of their workforce, unlocking hidden talent and maximizing business performance. Learn how jobs are being created to fulfill sustainability-related mandates and how companies in turn are building sustainable growth through the engagement and talent of their employees. This session will build on the findings of the agenda setting report, Tomorrow's Global Talent.
