Creating Caring and Meaningful Organisational Cultures

About the course

Many organisations have lost the ability to truly care for their employees, their customers, their stakeholders and the planet. This has happened in a wide variety of organisations, even care organisations. The Industrialisation of work processes, to be more efficient and productive, has driven out the space for compassion and care. The COVID-19 crisis also shows us the importance of care in our society and created new opportunities to appreciate new types of care firsthand in our own professional and personal communities.

This course will help us to understand new kinds of care that address urgent issues that we face today in our societies, from the obvious like elderly care to the care that should be much more obvious, for our communities and the planet.

By sharing stories of care that every participant and the trainers bring to the course, we are going to determine these new care practices. Together we will define how to inject these new care practises in your current projects and identify ways of stimulating a caring and meaningful culture in your organisation.

This course is delivered by tutors and practitioners in Europe and Asia from the Reach Network, a global network of studios with more than a decade long roots in HCD, now focusing on specific purposes such as care, planet and work. Each participant must bring a live project or task they are working on, or an organisation they are working with, to the course.

You will receive 2 hours of individual coaching on your project or task, as well as feedback from your fellow course participants who will transform into a lasting peer-to-peer community beyond the course. It is time to rethink and reimagine a more meaningful world of work, to place care at the centre of our practices, starting with each of us and driving to transform our organisations. This course will get you on your way!
