Culture, values & purpose: how to thrive in the post-COVID world
In this lively and fast paced event, you will learn how to build company culture, values and purpose into any organisation and why doing so is more important than ever in the post COVID-19 world.
The leaders of Equilibrium will share how they have embedded these aspects into their business, which is the only company to rank in the top 10 of the Sunday Times 100 Best Small Companies To Work For list for the past four years.
They will explain how their focus on culture differs from the mainstream approach taken by many businesses, and why they believe it is the reason their 90 staff members report feeling valued and supported whilst working from home during the lockdown.

Gaynor initially joined Equilibrium in 2010 as a management consultant, having been contracted for a period of 35 days.
Her tenacity and clarity of vision led to her quickly become a fully-fledged member of the team, with founder Colin Lawson entrusting her to transform the business from the ground up.
Gaynor revolutionised the way the company operates and, alongside Colin, spearheaded a pioneering company culture which made employee wellbeing the number one priority.
