Empowering you through knowledge sharing.

Advatera knowledge sharing groups

Meet colleagues from other organizations and discuss your current challenges face-to-face. Of course, all meetings are confidential: agencies, consultants and vendors are not allowed to take part. This setting allows for a down-to-earth knowledge-sharing environment.

You access a network of digital managers from national and international organizations. A broad variety of organizations is participating such as: ABB, Airbus, Caritas, L’Oréal, Swarovski, Swiss Post, Swisscom, 

All meetings are professionally moderated by Advatera. The meetings are not sponsored by the industry. They are completely advertisement free and neutral. This environment makes open and honest knowledge-sharing possible.

  • There are at least three on-site meetings per expert group per year.
  • And we have on a regular basis online sessions where all members throughout the whole Advatera community are invited. This enables a multinational dialogue on the topics.
  • In addition there are recorded online sessions for members. New recorded sessions are added on a regular basis.
  • In addition, one specific benchmarking call for your organization is included. You specify your current challenge and we set up a call with organizations from the network that are facing the same challenge or have just solved it.
  • As member you have also access to the virtual edition of the Digital Leadership Forum.

Due to the regularity of the meetings, we can address long-term projects, for example, the development of a toolbox for informal benchmarking with other participating organizations. This helps you drive your project.

Share your current challenges and get feedback from the group. Definitely at least one of the participating organizations already faced a similar challenge.

Communications and engagement in a hybrid working world - Collinson Case Study

Online Session English speaking
28 September 2021, 1.00 pm – 2.00 pm (Amsterdam/Berlin/Vienna/Zurich)
Cadence Willis
Global Director of Employee Engagement and Corporate Responsibility, Collinson
With little time to prepare, businesses across the world moved to remote working to ensure the health and safety of their people during the Covid-19 pandemic. Now, as we look towards a longer term post-covid future, research suggests the majority of people want to continue to work from home, at least some of the time, presenting an opportunity for organisations to re-think their approach and establish news ways of working.

What does this mean for communications and employee engagement? How do we need to adapt? What lessons can we learn from the pandemic and how can we best engage our people in a hybrid working world?

  • "Creation of a new internal communication channel in a context of organizational transformation and Covid-19 crisis." For any communicator, the Covid-19 crisis has led to a deep reflection on how to communicate. One of the challenges of internal communication has always been how to support and strengthen the connection between the employee to the organization (strategy & people). In my company,Partena Professional, the Covid-19 crisis will be coupled with a profound transformation of the organisation from the pyramid organisational model to collaborative governance. In a period of crisis and transformation, internal communication will have a key role to play in keeping everyone on board, giving meaning to the transformation, and maintaining the social link despite the physical distance. It is in this context that we have created a corporate radio and television station unlike any other, Anne-Sophie Noël, Partena Professional

Masterclass: Well-being - what leaders need to know in order to help themselves and their teams

Online Session English speaking
9 November 2021, 9.30 am – 11.30 am (Amsterdam/Berlin/Vienna/Zurich)
Danielle Bryant
Head of People Science, Quan
Katya Stepanova
Well-being program manager, Quan

Did you know that it is predicted that 56% of employees will burn out within the next 6 months if they do not receive support? Meanwhile, companies are busy providing generic solutions – a fruit box here, an ergonomic chair there, and giving managers instructions to have more one-on-one conversations. But how do we know if any of these interventions are actually improving well-being?
The truth is that there are more than 150 dimensions contributing to a person’s well-being. The market is saturated with solutions targeting dimensions we all know about: sleep, nutrition, fitness. But many of them don’t actually tackle the underlying problems.

It’s time to demystify well-being – so that people are more self-aware and are able to execute self-care in order to improve their work and personal lives.

We will address:

  • Recent statistics about employee well-being and productivity (impact of Covid 19 and remote working)
  • Introduction to the Quan well-being framework – a science-based holistic approach looking at dimensions across both personal and work-life: Mind, Body, Meaning, Social connectedness and Self-fulfilment
  • What leaders can do to recognize stress signs in their teams
  • What leaders can do to create the right context to create thriving teams
