Working at a Computer

The workplace as we know it is bound to evolve following the pandemic and the advent of work from home. As organizational stress has numerous and growing factors (i.e. augmented hours of work, lack of control and autonomy, lack of flexible working, technostress), the ability to develop new strategies to enhance wellbeing at work will be key for any organization looking to thrive in this evolving context. 

Our Distinguished Speaker, Professor Sir Cary L. Cooper, will explore the direct costs to health and productivity of a dysfunctional work environment, as well as explore the bottom line benefits to a strategic approach to wellbeing. 

This talk will be followed by a Q&A session.  

Live Captions: Please note that the presentation will take place in English, however French and English live captions will be available.
