Session: Regenerative business: Embedding ethics and inclusion in workplaces, products, and services
In the name of efficiency, organizations divide their employee and customer experience into silos: HR is responsible for the workplace, R&D creates products based on ideal average personas, and service teams manage the mismatch of expectations between those products and existing customers. This results in employees disengaged, users inadvertently excluded, and the dilution of responsibility for unintended outcomes.
What would it look like if businesses, with an eye on sustainability, asked ourselves instead: what are we leaving this planet?
In this session, I’ll share a framework to design regenerative employee, user, and customer experiences where ethical principles and inclusivity reunite our decision-making.
- Identify limiting beliefs about business around workplaces, products, and services.
- New principles for regenerative business
- Examples of companies applying regenerative practices
- A framework to deliver ethical and inclusive experiences (https://patriciagestoso.com/ethics-and-inclusion-framework/)
