Wait, I thought the workplace was over? Tuesday, 16 March 2021 from 10:20 AM – 10:35 AM

Session Region

How workplace is emerging as one of the most powerful organizational assets When organizations sent employees home in March and April, grand predictions were made about the future and fate of the workplace. CFO’s whispered about 50% reductions, HR specialists imagined a real work life balance outside the office, and business futurists all winked at the remote work revolution as if to say, “I told you so.” But after nearly a year, we are coming to terms with the limits of virtual collaboration and remote work. Employees have enjoyed the flexibility and convenience of working from home, but for most organizations, mentoring, on-boarding, community building and ideation have taken a performance hit. As a result, the workplace has shifted from a capital expense that must be minimized, to an organizational driver of culture, ideas and innovation. Our session will feature: • Real case studies of future workplace pilot projects • Data leveraged from our predictive analytics tool on workforce preferences, behaviours • Latest trends and innovations in workplace strategy, design, and construction delivery
