This policy-focused event will identify the levers that can make a difference in delivering effective workplace innovation and progressive workplace practice. It follows our recent workshops for business and academic communities that explored innovative workplace practices that support individual and organisational level creativity, innovative behaviour and organisational performance. Our final event will focus on the future direction of workplace practice and policy, applied research and the levers that a variety of stakeholders can use to make a difference.
