Join Intuitive and special guests for the Workplace Belonging Knowledge Session, Tuesday 5th July, 14:30 – 16:30.

Along with Alex Hynes, MD of Scotland’s Railway, and DDS Dobson-Smith, workplace culture specialist and former Eurostar and Crossrail leader, we’ll explore the hot topic of how Transport attracts and retains amazing talent from underrepresented communities.

We’ll take ED&I a step further, debating the concept of Diversity + Inclusion = Belonging, and how “belonging” has a critical impact on workplace performance and talent pipelining. With challenging times ahead for Transport, and an economic landscape where the War for Talent dominates, it’s fundamental to engage the brightest talent from every demographic.

Are inclusive workplaces the strategy to success? Hear directly from a sector and workplace culture expert and share your thoughts, live. Only at our exclusive webinar.
