A New World of Work - An Introduction to the New Knowledge Economy
Date: Wednesday, February 21, 2018 | Time: 11:30 am – 1:00 pm | The Catalyst Loft: 701 Pike St, Suite 2125 Seattle, WA 98101
Over the last hundred years, work has fundamentally changed. We have entered a new paradigm of work. Today the purpose of work has shifted from making things and sharing information, into a knowledge-based economy that is driven by idea generation and team collaboration. The line between work life and personal life has also blurred, making it difficult to determine when we are working and when we are not.
The combined impact of these issues has led progressive organizations to rethink their organizational structure, the importance of work culture, their leadership styles and the purpose of their physical work environment.
We invite you to attend this enlightening event, where we’ll share cutting-edge research on how work has evolved along with practical strategies to help you and your organization thrive in this bold new era.
Our featured speakers for this event are workplace psychologist Dr. Linda Wagener, and organizational design expert Dr. Richard Beaton. Dr. Wagener and Dr. Beaton are co-founders of Marigold Associates, an international consulting firm that develops human-centered work systems that optimize organizational performance.
This event is 90-minutes in length and includes a meal, presentation, and a panel discussion. Please RSVP below, the event is limited to 40 attendees. We look forward to seeing you.
