Academic Branch Session - Belonging and Connection in the Workplace with presentation by Natasha Zimmerman, founder, Unchatter

THIS EVENT IS NOW FULLY BOOKED. PLEASE REGISTER TO GO ON THE WAIT LIST

Please join the Academic Branch for a session on Belonging and Connection in the Workplace

About the research

Stripped down to its most basic tenets, the current research would suggest that belongingness is a human imperative, a necessary element of a fulfilling life. If we believe this to be empirically (and experientially) true, then it makes sense to overlay the concept of belongingness on the structure that consumes most of our waking life: work.

Particularly as we see shifts in what we value and ultimately seek in our work, it stands to reason that many organisations do (or will) have a desire to create cultures that are cohesive, productive, and meaningful. By demonstrating the impact of belongingness on workplace metrics that matter to both organisations and their citizens, we will come to understand the critical role that it plays in the changing world of work.

If you have any specific questions please feel free to email these to canterbury@hrnz.org.nz

About our Presenter

Natasha is the founder and creative force behind Unchatter, an organisation focused on bringing meaningful connection to the world with thoughtfully curated experiences. She creates spaces where small talk is banned, a set of intentional “party principles” are laid out, and an array of deep question cards get people beneath the surface and into the good stuff.

Natasha is originally from the US, where she was a healthcare executive before coming to New Zealand to pursue her PhD in Psychology at the University of Canterbury. Her current research is centred on belonging and connection in organisations, and she loves finding the juicy intersection of science, humanism, and practical application. Natasha’s driving force is helping every human see how much they matter, and she is lit up by working with organisations and individuals to cultivate meaning in work and in everyday life.

When she’s not engaged in a deep conversation, you’ll find Natasha diving into a good book, hiking in the hills, making colour coded spreadsheets, falling off the bouldering wall, and baking ridiculous cakes.
