With self-employment on the rise and organisations struggling to keep newly hired talent beyond two years, this month’s Smartworking Summit explores how well organisations understand today’s talent landscape.

The Planet Mark™ is once again teaming up with workplace experts Quora Consulting for their latest Smartkworking Summit, being held on March 7 in London.

Entitled ‘Understanding the changing business model’, the all-day summit will pose the question “how well do organisations understand the workforce?” in the face of big issues such as automation, the so-called gig economy and the growing self-employment economy.

Debating the issues will be industry leaders, including Paul Lester, CEO, TSB, Clare Barclay, COO, Microsoft, and Sarah Cox, COO, Ofgem.


The Planet Mark™ will provide a deeper dive into workplace sustainability and how it can help attract and retain talent, through an afternoon roundtable.

Led by Steve Malkin, founder of The Planet Mark™, the session will take a look at the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and how organisations that can show they are taking measurable action on the SDGs are providing more meaningful places for people to work for.

Now in their 16th year, the Smartworking Summits bring together CEOs, CFOs, COOs to CHROs, CIOs, group property/facilities directors from FTSE 100 and Fortune 500 organisations to openly discuss how they are addressing the changing nature of work.

Staged three times a year at Crutched Friars, in the City of London, these award-winning summits attracts over 750 C-suite executives a year to hear ‘unplugged’ industry leaders discuss workplace business-critical issues.
