Design Thinking is the latest human-centred approach to innovation that integrates the needs of people, the possibilities of technology and requirements for business success. As technology evolves at lightning speed and the economic environment grows more volatile, this methodology has been cited as a vital tool to develop HR solutions that support engagement, boost performance and drive innovation.
In fact, companies where HR reports the highest levels of value are five times more likely to be using Design Thinking and the approach has already been adopted by global brands including Australia and New Zealand Banking Group, General Electric and Ford Motor Company to develop innovative, human resources solutions.
In this full-day interactive workshop we will explore how Design Thinking can be used to develop impactful employee experience in a live challenge, examining how to improve on boarding to ensure new hirers thrive from the get-go.
Leaders, heads of department, senior managers, human resources, talent and change teams keen to improve employee experience at their own organisations.

“I have learned a lot about improving innovation in my workplace and I wish more people would see the need to increase creativity in everything we do. We certainly need to find new reasons to innovate, to push our creativity levels up and to motivate the teams we work with. Flick is a very effective educator and I strongly recommend you attend her sessions.”
