Scaling for Growth Workshop
Sponsor: Bank of Ireland
This Scaling for Growth with Bank of Ireland workshop will support businesses in getting back into the workplace with hands on shared experiences, peer learning and practical guidelines.
The interactive, online workshop will host speakers from Ryobi and CBRE, who will share their experiences of exiting lock-down by creating a safe place to work for staff within both manufacturing and office environments. Both speakers will share their own experiences of returning to the workplace, including implementing safety measures within factories and offices, communicating with staff and stakeholders and they will also share their learnings and best practice when bringing staff back to work.
This workshop will provide the opportunity for attendees to access the experience of the company speakers, ask questions, learn and connect with other businesses experiencing similar challenges and leave with practical takeaways for implementation within their own business.
The session will be open to a small number of companies to allow for active participation and interaction between speakers and participants. Priority will be given to SMEs who would benefit most from the content.
