What does Adaptavist sponsoring the event entail?
We’re delighted to take part in this event and contribute to the speaker lineup!
Our session “👥 Why you might lose 35% of your workforce” will address the difficulties that have arisen from working in a COVID-stricken world, as well as how to avoid the associated pitfalls, and how to best avoid them gracefully, for maximum team satisfaction and efficiency.
Join Cindy and Thomas in this session to learn about the latest insights from our Digital Etiquette survey, and understand how the 4,000+ people we asked have been feeling about the past couple of years... and how they envision the future.
And Jira users, rejoice! Our app Workflow Steps for Jira will allow you to create Jira tickets smoothly and painlessly, with an action as simple as an emoji reaction on a Slack message. The app’s features have kept on expanding since its release a few months ago, so watch this space!
And last but not least, Adaptavist is organising a raffle! You'll get a chance to win one of five workplace goodie packs (including earphones to get active and a massage gun to relax).
