About the talk
Code for South Africa recently published a calculator on News24 that helps employers decide what to pay their domestic workers. The response was overwhelming. While the topic of domestic workers is an important one, this tool is the latest in a series of experiments that explore a new form of delivering information to audiences. In an age of information overload, how can we deliver important content, and more importantly, how can we help users take action and make more informed decisions. The thinking behind this tool is universal and can be applied to your business to better communicate with your customers and other stakeholders.
