Case study: Community, connectivity and collaboration - how we work and how we connect as employees is changing
Many businesses assume that their future and the future of work will be rooted in technology. And while it’s true that technology will play an important role, Facebook is rethinking the future of work and doing it through the lens of people. It strongly believes people change organisations and that a more connected organisation becomes a more effective organisation. Companies that will thrive will be companies who have been able to turn their organisation into communities.
Our speaker will explore the six attributes he believes will be at the heart of successful organisations - one factor that unites all six: people.

Director - Workplace, Facebook EMEA
