Bruce Daisley formerly ran Twitter's business in EMEA, responsible for the development of Twitter in three continents. He’s now bestselling author and writer on better working.
In this bumper episode Bruce introduces his passion for creating a workplace where working at your company is your colleagues’ favourite job – from which they take meaning, satisfaction and laughter.
Discussing the timely topic of “Workplace Whys” – asking why people go to the office – and reflecting on the reason we bring people together to achieve business objectives, Bruce notes that there are challenges ahead for creating cohesion, shares reasons why he believes hybrid working isn’t going to work and advocates that HR has a brilliant opportunity to conduct a ‘pre-mortem’.
From flexible working to the climate crisis, Bruce shares his thoughts on the role of HR and invites us to recognise ‘the power of us’.
