It's All About Trust: Creating a Successful Activity Based Workplace in the Canadian Government


October 2019

Preparing a whole government office of 400 employee's for a major workplace transformation, from traditional cubicle farm to a fully unassigned activity based workplace over a two year period was a huge challenge for a project team, but even more for employees and managers. After one year, 85 % of the employees said they would recommend their new workplace to others and 90 % say their new workplace enables them to collaborate more effectively. The comment heard most often from the 800 visitors who came to visit in that first year was how impressed they were by the workplace, it's great vibe and the overall employee satisfaction. But also, how they feel that they would not be ready to successfully achieve such a transformation. Our team was not ready, and we think that no one ever is. Throughout this session, find out why and how building effective partnerships within the organization to shape an integrated and more collaborative work environment is at the center of success. At the center of it all is one very simple concept: trust.
