Combining Agile Leadership with Flexible Workplaces to Successfully Manage Change Thursday, 3 November 2022 from 10:00 AM – 10:40 AM

W-178 (Level 1)
Session Type
Learning Experience

When the pandemic forced office workers to work full-time from home, Public Services and Procurement Canada was able to leverage lessons learned from its recent transformation from a more traditional office space to an activity-based workplace. In this case study, we will bring the audience along our ongoing path of change management as we move forward in defining the future of work. The panel will discuss how flexibility in the physical workplace and agile leadership go hand in hand: the ability to think outside the box will be necessary to promote the benefits of the workplace, and an adaptive workplace will support needs of an evolving company culture. Whether they may be facing CRE, HR or IT challenges, the common denominator remains humans communicating with other humans.

Key Takeaways:

  • Identify key skills their managers and management teams will require to successfully adapt to changes in the workplace.

  • Discover how to plan for flexibility in office spaces, giving purpose to the workplace and promoting a sense of belonging.
