Event Description

There is no doubt that workplaces are different today than they were for our parents and grandparents. To attract top talent, companies will need a solid understanding of the workplace that the new generations of employees will be seeking and how they can fit the characteristics of that workplace into a profitable business model.

The Student Dialogue on Creating Great Workplaces is an opportunity for all of us to build that lucid understanding. In facilitated dialogues, you and your peers will determine the qualities that make great workplaces and how companies can implement these qualities to optimize their business model. Experienced professionals will help you refine your understanding to make you a stronger asset to your future employers.

The afternoon will start with networking and pizza. Then you will engage in a series of activities with structured questions to explore and discover how to build and lead great workplaces. You will receive a certificate for attending, and your name will be included in the writeup of our findings, including a LinkedIn article.
