EDAS / SUII Event: Workplace Innovation in Scotland, 30 May 2017

A learning workshop from the Economic Development Association Scotland and the Scottish Universities Insight Institute

Tuesday 30 May, 2.30 – 4pm
SUII Centre, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow
Refreshments provided
£25 + VAT EDAS Member / £50 + VAT Non-Members [Join to gain member rate]

This event explores the Scottish approach to workplace innovation – what the concept means; the potential benefits for organisations and employees; how workplace transformation can help achieve economic and social policy goals; and the policy levers available in Scotland to aid the transition to the workplace of the 21st century.
According to a recent research project supported by SUII, collaborative workplace innovation can improve business/organisational outcomes, benefit individuals, and help improve competitiveness while tackling inequality. Such practices are of great interest at the international level and to the Scottish Government.
EDAS and SUII invite you to join expert speakers, practitioners and case study presenters to learn about how we can all support workplace innovation to the benefit of Scotland’s economy and society. Don’t miss out on this chance to learn about this important topic and network with members of the economic development community from across sectors!
