Risk Talk on work environments for high human performance

01 Nov 2012

About the event

The Risk Talk series of the Swiss Re Centre for Global Dialogue brings together international experts and practitioners to discuss current and future economic, political and societal risks as well as opportunities.

Gone are the days when ‘face time’ in the office counted more than business results. One size fits all attitudes to working have passed their sell-by date. Businesses want to increase efficiency and attract the best talent and skills. Across generations, an evolving and diverse workforce is demanding change. Existing and emerging technologies continue to redefine the dimensions of when and where we work.

The Risk Talk on work environments for high human performance will address human performance factors, best practices examples, business and personal opportunities, and the risks involved in changing the way we work.

The following speakers will address these and other issues at the Risk Talk:

  • Heiko Fischer, Founder, Resourceful Humans Consulting
  • Manfred Spitzer, Medical Director, Professor and Chairman, Psychiatric Hospital, University of Ulm
  • David Cole, Group Chief Risk Officer, Member of the Group Executive Committee, Swiss Re
  • Christoph Nabholz, Head Business Development, Swiss Re Centre for Global Dialogue

 

This event will be broadcasted live, photographed, videotaped, filmed and/ or recorded. A summary of the event, pictures and/or a video of the event in which you may appear may be posted and made available on Swiss Re’s and the Swiss Re Centre for Global Dialogue’s internal and external websites and in printed materials.
