This week, some of the world’s top businesses, including Netflix, Amazon, and Microsoft are joining the The Future Proof Summit to talk about how to create great workplace culture.
The online summit runs until Friday, October 20 and is designed for professionals looking to understand, develop, and share best practices when it comes to people in the workplace.
The best part is that the Summit doesn’t cost anything to attend and you can participate from wherever you are in the world, for as little or as long as you like.
One of the organizers of the summit is Eric Termuende of NoW Innovations, a company aiming to make innovative People & Culture practices more widely known.
Daily Hive got the chance to speak with Termuende to learn more about the Summit and how it is helping companies foster a positive work culture within their businesses.
Daily Hive: Tell us how you came up with the idea for the Future Proof Summit?
Eric Termuende: We’ve seen major disruption in most things we do; from how we get around, to how we book hotels, and even how we communicate. We haven’t seen the same rapid disruption in the Human Resources space.
As a result, we thought that we should learn more about what some of the best companies in the continent are doing, and share that with anyone who wants to learn more. With the sharing economy being in full-swing, we wanted to be a company that was rooted in collaboration really show that we have nothing to hide. The companies featured in the Summit agreed with us too!
Daily Hive: Why was it important to you to focus on positive workplace culture?
Daily Hive: This is a virtual summit – tell us how that concept works?
Daily Hive: When can those interested start participating in the Future Proof Summit? Is this something they can participate in anytime?
Daily Hive: Can you tell me a bit about the speakers participating in the Summit?
Eric Termuende: The speakers range from CEOs to Senior HR and People & Culture professions. These people are the best of the best and we’re very lucky to have them on board. They have decades of combined experience and work for some of the most forward-thinking companies in the continent.
