The GoodWork Society(The GWS) aims to enrich society by encouraging organisations to adopt more human ways of working and engages people in public lectures, events, research and a consulting network.
Last year, the GWS hosted an open conversation between people from some of Joburg’s most influential organisations in exploring better ways to tap into the full potential of people in work.(See a summary of the event).
In 2018 we are honoured to have a new home and partnership with Perch, a modern co-working space based in the heart of the prime business district in Rosebank, Joburg. Perch aims to be a dynamic working environment that fosters collaboration between its members whom consist of entrepreneurs, small business owners and professionals.
The GWS sees a natural partnership with Perch in not only hosting our monthly gatherings but also an opportunity to deeply explore how people work together and the associated dynamics.
“Our search for The GoodWork Society’s new home was very brief, having encountered Perch early in our search. We immediately connected to their purpose: to create more than just a beautiful space but to also drive a culture that improves collaboration and conversation, thereby enriching the work experience for those open to modern, creative ways of working.”– Palesa Sibeko, The GoodWork Society co-founder
Some of the conversations that would benefit from your attendance and input in the next community GWS gatherings include topics spanning how to support culture in mobile workforces to navigating psychological safety. We look forward to building knowledge with you that will contribute to improving the way that we work as a nation.
The GWS is supported by Inquisition, a work design company that designs better ways for people to create and learn together. Inquisition and Perch have exciting news to share in the next few weeks that you will want know about. Keep a look out for the next newsletter for details.
