Session – I______________________10.30 am – 11.15 am

Workplace 3.0: Understanding happiness of today and tomorrow and defining the ‘what’?

How we work, who we work with, and even what we define as work is evolving. We are at the intersection of data, sensors and cognitive computing. As technology in the workplace increases, it will have a big impact on both people and culture. It’ll change the type of people you employ. It’ll change the culture of delivery within the organisation. It’ll drive us away from applying human thoughts to things which can be automated in a very logical way. With such disruptions transforming workplaces, how will the definition of employee happiness change? Do organisations need to look at it from a different lens now?

How technology can be used to iron out the inconveniences or irritations of employee work-life?

Session – IV____________________2.00 pm – 2.45 pm

Human and Machines as co-workers: are we ready for a shift in mindset?

Automation and AI is set to bring about a new wave of changes in the way businesses function. Beginning with the automation in industrial sector, AI and cognitive intelligence enabled bots are making inroads into the workplace in different domains now. While many people are worried that they will lose their jobs to a machine, Cognitive technologies will also create new jobs or just redesign jobs to incorporate new technology solutions. Enterprises will have to integrate both smart machines and people into their talent networks. In the new environment, a shift will be required in the way humans function, as robots enter the workplace as their colleagues. But, are we ready to work in collaboration with machines? Do we need a shift in mindset? How can organisations orient their workers to stay prepared for the emotional change?

Session – V_____________________2.45 pm – 3.15 pm

What’s the secret sauce in a happy company?

What makes a company a happy place to work? Is it the remuneration, the career-progression opportunities, the learning experience or the overall culture? Happy people make happy organisations, but there ought to be something special that these organisations do to ensure a happy and engaged workforce.

Tangible Vs Intangible: Safety over Rewards

Monetary or not, tangible rewards are known to be one of the biggest motivators for people. However, while companies think of newer rewarding options to keep their talent happy and motivated to perform better, there are some basic assurances that they need to focus more on – and one of that is workplace safety. Can safety at work be a major contributor to employee Happiness over tangible benefits? How are we using new technology to mitigate dangers at work, if not eliminate them altogether.

Session – VII___________________4.15 pm – 5.00 pm

CEO’s take: How senior leaders can build and maintain a high-performing and yet a happy work environment

CEOs and Leaders need to recognize that all experiences create culture. This experience may be of a customer or an employee. Happiness and outcome of these experiences is important for business, be it employees or customers? It’s time to treat happiness as an engineering discipline, not a magical one.
