We are super excited! Hosted in the recently opened Talent Garden Vienna, VIE LESA co-facilitated a great kick-off of HR Sandbox goes Vienna on 29 May 2019.

HR Sandbox is a new, invitation-only HR format. It was successfully introduced by here we are  in Copenhagen and offers an experimental and experiential (hands-on) space for considering, exploring, discussing, developing and sharing alternative approaches, innovative possibilities and best practices for today’s diverse, flexible, mobile, “portable” and digital talents.

In line with VIE LESA’s vision of connecting like-minded spirits, we gathered a dozen stakeholders – from academia, international organisations, HR professionals and reps from other topic-related associations – around one table (set up in form of a sandbox) to  *co-develop fresh, creative perspectives *co-create new, practical solutions for (Global) Dual Career(s) and Talent Management in Austria.

It was inspiring to see that everyone participating was open to share their expertise, insights, best practice, pain points etc. and interested in co-creating (even more) opportunities / turning dual career challenges into opportunities.

After 1.5hrs of intense brainstorming, we agreed this advocacy type of event should become a regular one to contribute writing a new dual career narrative in Vienna/Austria. And Talent Garden’s tables branded CHANGE – INNOVATE – SHARE – PROGRESS were perfect to capture the essence of the “outcome”.

To be continued….
