2) the three simple, low-cost ways to instantly improve the working environment that will quickly improve people’s wellbeing, performance and productivity

Supercharge your SME performance & build sustainable competitive advantage

5th March 2020 | 8:30am – 1pm

Saïd Business School, Park End Street, Oxford, OX1 1HP

Organisations who invest in employee experience have found that they are more profitable, have lower employee turnover, generate more revenue, and have far superior stock price performance over their peers. The return on investment on employee experience has proven to be very significant.

Attendees of LCMB’s “Supercharge your SME performance” workshop, in partnership with Oxfordshire Greentech, will hear how to maximise the return on investment they get from two critical drivers of performance: their people and their real estate.
