9:50 AM Increasing Engagement through Inclusiveness and Collaboration: An Insight into Australia Post’s Grapevine
Australia Post’s Grapevine sessions brings together groups of about 100 people from across different levels and business units. It encourages them to discuss enterprise values, new ways of working, achievements, challenges and new ideas. It enables people to connect as individuals with those internal and external of their business unit. It takes them away from their desks for a 2 day experience, and once back at the office they are refreshed, reenergised and focused to give their work their all. The Grapevine sessions have increased employee engagement by 13%.
