A Thinking Culture: The Foundations of Success for 'CSR Racing 2'


Launched in 2016 NaturalMotion's 'CSR Racing 2' is the leading racing game on mobile. In this session, Julian Widdows, Vice President of NaturalMotion, will explain how the team's results are a product of a systematic approach to culture and talent engagement. Covering their unique approach to culture, engagement, ownership, inclusivity, and talent health, the session will look at how putting people-first has delivered benchmark results for NaturalMotion. This talk will cover themes including organizational health, neuroscience, psychometric models, "The Thinking Environment", and how the underlying theory is put into practice every week in the studio. This organizational model, replicated in whole or in part, can significantly improve talent engagement, health, and performance in any team or business.
