Prepare one of the three sections of the Ways of Working assessment: The email will contain your assigned section of the Ways of Working assessment (Meeting Culture, Manager Effectiveness, or Employee Wellbeing). Please fill out the introductory and analysis slides for the PowerPoint with the title of the specific section assigned to you from this Power BI file.
