Can You Be a Super Parent and an Excellent Employee at the Same Time? w. Majken Juel Heskjær
Becoming a parent is tough as well as it’s wonderful. It’s life-changing in so many ways, and maybe when it comes to your job too. In the past, you might have been the last person leaving your desk at the end of the workday, or the one going on business trips for several days during the month.
Now, you have the responsibility of a child, and you might need a bit more flexibility to take care of your job and your child, at the same time. But is your workplace ready to give you this opportunity? And why is it even important to give working parents better opportunities to create the just right work-life balance?

How to Cope with Work-Related Stress & Burnouts w. Dr. Cary Cherniss
Stress can be caused by different factors, and your job is one of them. For quite some time, we have been talking about a global stress epidemic, and in 2020, statistics said that 43 % of employees increasingly felt pressure from stress.
But what can you do to prevent yourself from burning out? And is it even your responsibility to make sure that stress is not part of your daily routine at your workplace?

Should We All Work in the Metaverse - and How? w. Karina Rothfoff Brix
The metaverse seems futuristic and the opportunities even more dreamy. Maybe - we will be able to handle even more tasks with our very own AI-twin and work from a sunny island, but without getting the sand into our keyboards.
But – is the metaverse for all kinds of employees? Do we need huge equipment to enter the metaverse? And isn’t there a potential risk of us getting lonelier, when we don’t get that special in-person touch – and, instead, just sit day-in and day out in front of our screens without any other inputs from the world around us?

What Does the Future Leader Look Like? w. Bruce Avolio
Globally, 80 % feel unengaged at work according to Gallup. And, if the leaders just lean back and do business, as usual, it’s quite probable that their unengaged employees will look around for new opportunities, where their leader actually takes their wellbeing seriously. So, what can leaders do to take better care of their employees? And what does it take to become the best leader possible in the future?

What Defines The Happiest Employees in the World? w. Liselotte Jensen
Happiness. What comes to mind? Your family, your friends? Sunkissed memories from your last holiday with sand between your toes? Or what about your job?
These days, elevating the employee wellbeing is on top of the agendas for most workplaces. This might be caused by the time we had to reflect during the pandemic about what truly made us happy in life and at work. And now we, the employees, crack the typical structures of what happiness at work truly means.
So, how can we make sure that everyone is happy at work, and how does the happiest employees in the world look like?

The 4 Day Work Week - What's New and Can it Work? w. Alex Pang
The 4 Day Work Week is trending as never before. Now, it’s not only something that cool start-up companies take on, but larger corporations are also starting to look into this interesting way of framing our work. And what’s not to like? You get the same pay for working less. BUT – the thing is, you still have the same workload as before. This means, that if you don’t structure your way of working even better, time becomes an issue and it might end up stressing you out during your workday, while you snap at your insisting co-workers – who just like you – also need to get their tasks done in the timeframe of a 4 day work week.
So, how can you ensure that the 4 day work week will become a success – both for you as an employee and your company too?
