Agile-Friendly and Pandemic-Safe: A new Headquarters Campus for Post-COVID Engagement Tuesday, 9 November 2021 from 9:00 AM – 9:40 AM

How could company culture still be maintained and shared with new members of a rapidly growing company? How important is in-person engagement to establishing and reinforcing the culture, and to maintaining the highest levels of productivity, innovation, and role fulfillment? How can a workplace be re-imagined and delivered to support collaborative in-person and remote team members? Discover how a Fortune 30 company with high aspirations for continued growth is addressing these questions in developing a new 6,000-seat regional headquarters. They will discuss workforce expectations, corporate culture and tradition, and a highly collaborative and innovative design approach for the campus.

Key Takeaways:

  • Develop new collaborative approaches to adapting to the evolving corporate culture and policies around remote, hybrid, and in-person work, and apply those to the design of a large campus.

  • Define attributes of the future workforce and resulting requirements of the future workplace in an uncertain environment, when long-reliable heuristics around space utilization and configuration are likely no longer valid.

  • Strive for new dimensions of flexibility to enable rapid, low- or no-cost reconfiguration as experimentation and experience indicate better ways of applying the workplace elements for certain groups and certain work processes.
