Symposium and Launch of the Stratis FTL Ireland Workplace Innovation Network


A Europe-wide platform for facilitating workplace innovation and knowledge sharing between businesses and organisations is set to launch in Dublin next month with a symposium to be held at IAA Conference Centre.

Fresh Thinking Labs (FTL) is the international open source movement for workplace innovation. It is part of Workplace Innovation Europe Limited and its membership includes both large and small businesses including Aviva, E.ON, GE Transportation, Novozymes, and Saint-Gobain.

Its extensive network provides a pathway for businesses to discover the best workplace practices and latest thinking from across Europe. It is currently facilitating workplace visits and networking events with SAAB Aerospace in Sweden, Leo Pharma in Copenhagen and MBDA Systems in the UK.

The launch follows the appointment of Dublin based Stratis Consulting as the exclusive Irish partner of FTL. Stratis comprises the most experienced and innovative team of practitioners in their field in Ireland working at leadership team, chief executive and board levels to support organisations to lead improvements in critical areas of employee relations, people strategy and workplace innovation.

Brendan McGinty Managing Partner at Stratis Consulting, said: “This launch event will give organisations an early opportunity to understand more about how FTL network could benefit them by combining an online community designed to support shared learning and innovation in the workplace with face-to-face dialogue and relationship building through inter-company visits and workshops at regional, national and international levels.

“Workplace Innovation Europe Limited’s Director, Peter Totterdill, will be speaking at the symposium. He and his team at FTL have an international reputation for bridging the gap between academic theory and practical application. They are inspiring businesses of all types to seek better ways of organising their workplaces, improving productivity and performance and enhancing employee well-being.”


The Symposium and Launch of the FTL Ireland Workplace Innovation Network will take place on Friday October 6th 2017 at the IAA Conference Centre, D’Olier Street, Dublin 2. (8.30am-12.30 pm).
