The Inner Chief


Oct 12, 2023

β€œThe really successful companies will be the ones that realise that they can't set a bunch of policies at a company level and think it's going to work for everybody; rather, they will have highly personalised employee experiences."

In this episode of The Inner Chief podcast, I speak to Kath Blackham, CEO of The VERSA Group, on extracting huge value from diversity and inclusion, mental health in the workplace and using tech for good.
