The revolution has begun. The world has changed and along with it, our relationship to work, career, and the office is unlike anything we’ve experienced before. New words have entered employees’ vocabulary, words like ‘flexibility’, ‘choice’, and ‘wellbeing’ and they are here to stay.
Businesses of all sizes must now pivot to engage, support, and promote the wellbeing of their employees in order to create new opportunities for them to improve productivity and better achieve their shared goals.
Join us for an event at Home Grown, where our Founder Walter Craven will be joining a panel to discuss changing human behaviour and its impact on the future of the workplace and the inspiration that led to the creation of our Micro Offices (which is a new addition at Home Grown, the Private Members’ Club in London for entrepreneurs and investors).

6.00pm: Guest Arrival and Drinks Reception
