WWE Panelists

This event is centered around a group discussion with a panel of experts.

Wondering what type of questions we may ask?  Here’s a sample of POSSIBLE discussion topics:

  • Are workplaces, in your opinion, healthy & thriving?  Explain your position.
  • The structure of the standard work week leaves little to look forward to… does it need to change and why?
  • In your HR position, how do you manifest change when you see change is necessary?
  • Burnout… how does it impact the environment?
  • How do we get business leaders to lead from the heart?  Is it important?
  • As a corporate influencer, what is your role in supporting thriving workplaces?
  • Working for retirement seems to be an elusive dream these days.  What impact does that have on the workforce?
