Improving Workplace Morale and Motivation Roundtable Webinar

Event Type
Research Project

Talent Management, Organization and Future of Work

The COVID-19 pandemic, so-called ‘Great Resignation’, and supply chain issues have led to significant changes in the day-to-day work of innovation and R&D practitioners.  Morale is always a key concern for management, but these changes have in some cases had a huge impact on how employees feel about their roles and their ability to function in them.  This roundtable is an opportunity to discuss concerns and learn how other IRI members are tackling this key issue.  It will be the first step in a new IRI research project that will identify best practices in improving R&D workplace morale and motivation.

To receive a calendar invitation, contact Matt Dorocak.
