The way we work is changing. Companies are competing to hire and retain the best employees, increase productivity and output, and reduce costs. But to create the best working environment, we need to understand how work gets done. What we often use as indicators - org charts, surveys, process diagrams - doesn’t actually outline how we work. And what worked for one company, might not work for you. So how can we make work, better? Join MIT Media Lab Ph.D. and Humanyze CEO, Ben Waber, and a new guest every month to uncover how we can create better workplaces.
