    David Bellamy, Founder & CEO of Harkn

    The world has changed. How, when, where, and even why we work is being redefined. 

    One thing remains true: Employees are the lifeblood of your organisation. 

    But despite being central to success, many employees’ voices aren’t heard – fuelling the growing crisis in engagement and wellbeing at work. 

    It’s time to embrace a new era. It’s the age of the listening organisation, where every voice is heard, understood, and valued. 

    In the listening organisation, feedback mechanisms are dynamic, inclusive, and responsive, facilitating real-time insights and fostering a culture of continuous dialogue and improvement. 

    This talk will discuss the characteristics of the listening organisation, its inherent competitive advantage, and how businesses can strengthen their listening muscles to hear more of what matters from their people.
