Second announcement workshop YPP conference 2016


Leading IT consultancy firm Quint Wellington Redwood joined forces with Achmea and will provide one of the workshops during this years YPP conference on October 28 at ABN AMRO in Amsterdam!

Purpose driven sourcing
Organizations try to automate or even robotize all the work they can, even if it is core to their business. The remaining non-core work is often outsourced. All the other work is left behind for the remaining employees, putting them at the lowest picking order. In the last few decades, this has put a lot of people in uncertainty about their lives. No wonder in the world only 17 percent of the workforce is truly engaged at work, while companies with engaged people outperform other companies tenfold.
What would happen if we would turn around the picking order, and automate and outsource only that work that people don’t find purposeful or are not passionate about?
During this break out session, we want to explore this radically new approach to sourcing with you. The ultimate goal is to find a sourcing approach that has a positive impact on people and profit.
