The Expert Council members focused on discussing the future development of the research initiative and expressed their opinions on improving the methodology of data collection, in particular, voicing a proposal to expand the pool of participants within a single company. Yulia Uzhakina shared her point of view that it is necessary to keep balance between interests of employees and business aims of the company on the way to human-centered processes in the company. Stephen Griffiths supported this point: "The value of research is to keep employees more motivated and engaged in their work processes while keeping the business competitive."
The second part of the side event featured a pitch session by representatives of Russian companies on how human-centered processes are working in their organizations. Employees of Valta Pet Products JSC, red_mad_robot, Inventive Retail Group, Auriga LLC, Gazpromneft PJSC, Grinatom JSC, Dodo Brands and others shared their cases of human-centered practices.
