Join ANZ's Organisational Psychologist, Marija Potter and Chair in Business Growth, Dr Jana Matthews with AUT's Candice Harris as they discuss how, and why, companies need to think out of the box when it comes to boosting their attraction to experienced technologists, and retaining their Tech talent. The trio will reflect on global reserach from a Organisational Psychology perspective and insights into the innovative approaches being taken by organisations to avoid the big resignation.

Part of our Build Tech Tips speaker series on Building a High Performing Tech Organisation - a speaker series of enriching discussions for achieving organisational success. As part of ANZ’s passion for building New Zealand’s Technology Ecosystem, we'll be sharing thought leadership and lessons learnt on creating an effective tech organisation, focusing both on individuals looking to build their tech careers and, on Tech companies looking to boost their understanding and appeal to new and experienced tech talent - from hiring to retaining to growth and diversity. Join us for one, some or all of these engaging panel discussions.

Read Jana's thoughts on the Big Resignation and her blog on Leading during a crisis.
