Let’s build better experiences for your employees

Technology and recent times has had a profound impact on our working environment, accelerated by the increase in connectivity tools, demand for flexibility and also our expectations of what work has to offer. It’s official - the future of work is here. Against a backdrop of rapid technology-driven change in the workplace, the human condition remains and the culture of an organisation and the way it interacts with its people and its customers is more important now than ever before. The traditional workplace is fragmenting as technology savvy millennials and digital natives will soon make up the majority of the workforce.

Future of Work

With the advancements in technology, the modern workplace has undergone a significant transformation in the past three years. This stream looks at how organisations need to ensure that people thrive regardless of their physical location, and how it is imperative to provide a work environment that offers enriching experiences.

The Digital Workplace

Work is changing faster than ever and digital technologies have allowed organisations to reimagine the workplace and offer a virtual version of a physical office through cloud-based systems and digital applications. This stream will look at how organisations can migrate to a digital workplace and how this can help improve flexibility and productivity, reduce operational costs and improve employee wellbeing.

Collaboration and Value Creation

It's key that these elements are upheld as workplaces become more fragmented than ever before. According to a survey by McKinsey & Company, organisations that foster a culture of collaboration tend to be more innovative, efficient and have higher employee engagement levels compared to those that don't. Join this stream to discover how to create a high-performing team with collaboration at the heart.

The Evolution of New Workplace Technologies

Technology is only one component of the employee experience, but savvy deployment of technology makes a difference, especially in a modern workplace. This stream promises tools, tips and strategies for implementing technology into your future of work strategy.

Designing Modern Employee Experiences
Are the experiences you're providing your workforce truly driving value? Join this stream to learn how leading organisations are designing modern employee experiences that drive productivity, engagement and employee performance.
Internal Communications

More so now than ever before, effective internal communications strategies play a pivotal role in fostering a productive and engaged workforce. This translates into a more positive work environment, where employees are motivated to perform at their best and contribute to the success of the company. This stream will demonstrate what it takes to implement a winning communications strategy that meets the needs of the modern employee.

Remote and Hybrid Working
Remote and hybrid working are becoming increasingly prevalent in the modern workplace. Both options offer a range of benefits, including increased flexibility, improved work-life balance, and reduced commuting time and costs. However, it also comes with their own unique challenges, such as the need for strong communication and collaboration skills, and the potential for isolation and disconnection from the team. As the trend towards remote and hybrid working continues to grow, this stream will demonstrate how to develop your strategies to ensure success.
Improving the Employee Journey
Employee satisfaction and engagement are crucial to the success of any business, and reimagining the employee journey in a modern workplace is a key factor in achieving this. Join this stream to learn how to create a culture of trust, respect, and collaboration that fosters loyalty and productivity. 
The New Employee Experience

A modern employee experience encompasses a range of factors, including a positive work culture, flexible work arrangements, opportunities for professional development, and a sense of purpose and meaning in one's work. It is not just about providing a paycheck and benefits, but rather creating an environment where employees feel valued, supported, and empowered to reach their full potential. Join this stream to learn how a modern employee experience is about creating a workplace that is not only productive and successful, but also fulfilling and enjoyable for every member of the team.

Succeeding in the Era of the Intelligent Workplace

The era of the intelligent workplace is upon us, and those who can harness its power will succeed. The intelligent workplace revolves around the integration of technology, data, and people to create a seamless and efficient work environment. This stream will provide you with the right tools and techniques to thrive in the era of the intelligent workplace and achieve unprecedented success.

Belinda Vazquez

TUI Workspace Director
Having worked at TUI for over 23 years, it will come as no surprise I am passionate about travel! I started my career within the tour operator sector of our business, deciding what destinations and hotels we offer our customers. Working for such a large organisation gave me the opportunity to move around the business, taking on a number of roles within IT, Airline and Distribution divisions, as well as running our business in Ireland. My most recent role, Director of Retail within our UK and Ireland business, found me working with my other passion, people. With just over 600 stores and 4,500 travel experts pre Pandemic, it gave me the opportunity to work closely with an amazing, passionate group of individuals. Of course over the last 2 years the role looked very different, as we had to manage all the change that came with the pandemic. 10 months ago, we spotted an opportunity to redefine our ways of working within TUI. We wanted to ensure we built on the lessons learnt through the pandemic and adapt. We introduced the Workspace Director role, my current position and one that is ever evolving in today's world.
