Inaugural Work Design Congress

Designing good work with collaborative leadership across business functions

20-21 November 2024, Sydney

Work design provides an important new lens for specialists throughout the modern organisation, making a huge impact across human resource management, WHS, operations, and beyond. Effective work design has been proven to promote greater wellbeing outcomes, increase productivity, and create safer and more compliant organisations. Your organisation must integrate work design into regular business operation, to ensure your workforce thrives in the challenges of tomorrow.

The Inaugural Work Design Congress will welcome senior leaders in HR, organisational development, safety, and wellbeing, who have begun this vital journey of effective work design. Over two exciting days of focused and practical insights, you will pioneer new strategies and tools, all to ensure that your employees can reach their full potential.
