Ash Harder is the New Zealand brand and communications manager for leading global business technology provider, Sharp Corporation. Ash’s key focus throughout her career has been on the ability for clear communication to transform perceptions, improve office culture, and drive whole-of-business outcomes.
From making their first coffee in the morning to turning on their computer to start their day, your team’s experience with facilities, technology and business processes directly affects their impression of your business, its ability to make good decisions, and ultimately whether you’re a good employer to work for. With the skills shortage in New Zealand at an all-time high, Ash asks, “Is now the time for business leaders to remove roadblocks to success for their team members? And if not now, when?”
These initiatives are vast—IT services and automation, well-styled offices, reliable amenities and more—and all work either for or against your business’s goals.
In this talk, Ash will cover two employee journeys—one with roadblocks and frustrations that many people experience daily, and another, more aspirational example of a team member that only needs to focus on their projects and tasks at hand, from car to desk, desk to boardroom, boardroom to bathroom, and beyond.
