CRF 7th International Conference 2015: 5-7 October, Vienna – Key messages

In selecting The Meaning & Purpose of Work' as our theme for 2015, we sought to embrace the musical ambience and academic heritage of our host city and, using a full symphony orchestra as a metaphor for organisational life, mix presentation and discussion with orchestral interventions to demonstrate how we might create more meaningful workplaces.

This video provides an overview of the key messages from the presentations of our conference keynote speakers.
