Alexander Breskvar - Corporate VP, Quality Management, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy

Culture is one of the biggest pillars in business transformation yet it is never easy for leaders to get to the bottom of what employees truly think, despite of all efforts in surveys and engagement programs. This challenge has been amplified further with most of our workforces now working remotely for more than a year now. This session is looking into new methods and approaches for leaders to create an environment where the truth from the employees’ perspectives are revealed. This is also aimed to be an interactive session so please come armed with your questions, challenges and suggestions. 

·        Why are traditional culture surveys not working effectively?

·        What are the new ways to find out about the truth when workforce is remote and distributed?

·        Sharing the approach and examples that have been working at Siemens Gamesa
