Thank you for joining us in London. We hope you got inspiration on the future of Workforce Management.

Achieving growth and success in business today can difficult. We offer motivation, fresh thinking, and new approaches that you can bring back to your organization.
Inspiration is always good, but it needs to land on a strategy. Take note of how successful start-ups and leading actors have framed their strategies to grow despite tough conditions.
During the day you will receive concrete tips on how to succeed with your staff planning and optimization, as well as how to get the most out of your employees. You will also get tips on system support and smart tools that can support you in this.
Meet industry experts, challengers and like-minded people and use them for brainstorming, to discuss challenges, and exchange lessons and keys for success.

May the workforce
