Pursuing What Is Possible: The Importance of Workplace Flexibility
In this keynote speech, workplace diversity speaker Ted Childs weighs on in the critical national/global dialogue on workplace flexibility. Boiling the dialogue down to its importance in keeping corporations competitive, Childs explains how workplace flexibility impacts attracting and retaining talent; how work gets done and how talent delivers business results; how we win on the economic battlefield; and, ultimately, quality of life. Most importantly, Childs explains, this dialogue is about leadership: Can we create workplaces where our best and brightest people, our core business assets, can give their best each day, at the highest levels of productivity, morale, and retention? Explaining that it is necessary to not only compete in business but to win, Childs encourages corporations to ask themselves what is possible and seek game-changing solutions. The old ways of conducting business are not enough: the time for change is now.
Diversity & Inclusion: The Impact on Employee & Patient Satisfaction
As a leading corporate diversity expert, Ted Childs understands the importance of embracing diversity and the advantage it provides in the war for talent and an increasingly competitive global marketplace. To achieve maximum potential, we must pay attention to changing demographics and emerging issues, and embrace them as opportunities for growth. Childs will clarify the definitions associated with diversity and inclusion, explore the global environment, including the marketplace, look at external recognition as a subject matter influence, share his diversity and inclusion "global mega-trends," and close with commentary about leadership as a tool for integrating diversity and inclusion into the DNA of today’s business leader.
