Marking its 5th anniversary, ABSL Cluj-Napoca Business Mixer, the event dedicated to the local Business Services community, will take place on March 5th, starting 9:30, at Vertiv Premises, on Someșului St., No. 30.

Creating and cultivating a digital culture in 2020 is no longer optional, but, in order to stay competitive, it’s almost mandatory to be an integral approach in the transformation journey. Therefore, this process requires a work environment that not only embeds digital from the top-down, but also creates a space where all employees, regardless of their role, are engaged and made aware of the impact digital can have on productivity and desired results. Success occurs only when people act in ways that support the digital strategy.

But getting people to shift their mindsets and ways of working can be challenging. So, in order to create sustainable change, leaders need to consider all factors that shape the human behaviour on multiple levels: professional, personal and social. What are those factors? How can we best influence them to challenge the status quo? What are the risks? Let’s meet at Cluj-Napoca Business Mixer: Making the Shift: Embedding a Digital Culture in Business Services’ companies and tackle topics such as Digital Culture, Company Values, Leadership, Behaviours, Environment and many others.

The challenges of rapid momentum Viorel Opaiț, Business Development Director – JLL Romania

 → Momentum can have both positive and negative aspects. Cities that are growing quickly tend to punch above their weight in attracting capital, companies and people. However, this can create challenges, particularly in the environmental and social impacts of this rapid growth. If these challenges are left unchecked, it is unlikely that this momentum will be sustainable and a city’s economy will therefore struggle to mature and move to the next level of development.
