Design Thinking Workshop
Design Thinking Workshop: As part of StartUp Week Dublin, two members of the Business School staff ran a novel design thinking workshop for senior management, HR professionals and future of work enthusiasts in the Guinness Enterprise Centre. The session entitled “Reframing the concept of work” was facilitated by Dr. Peter Robbins on October 24th in association with TalentForce, a Dublin based social enterprise committed to part-time & flexible professional hiring strategies.
Some of Ireland’s most talented individuals are uncomfortable with our current paradigm of employment. Many of our most gifted citizens seek flexibility in work arrangements or are returning to work after a career break. The purpose of the event was to help managers and HR experts consider their current work packages and reframe their concept of recruitment. The session asked teams to consider the future of flexible hiring in the various scenarios and how they would consider it evolving within companies. The session was found to be engaging, thought-provoking and beneficial for all involved.
