In 2020, the world has changed. Preconceived notions about workplace have evaporated overnight. Employee safety, security, and comfort have become a top priority, and a focus on workplace experience, resiliency, and readiness are driving the future of the workplace. But what can we learn from pre-existing workplace trends?
In the current environment, COVID-19 is reinforcing the need to prioritize the following workplace topics: change and flexibility, need for collaboration, sustainability and wellness, and technology and innovation. Companies and individuals have an opportunity to leverage workplace models that enable increased collaboration and flexibility while supporting occupant wellbeing and performance. Now more than ever, we can see the value proposition of Activity-Based Working (ABW) environments - those that engender a sense of autonomy and importance by providing choice and control over where and how employees work.
In this panel session, we'll be looking at how ABW can enable organizations to effectively shift into the future of work by optimizing real estate, enhancing user experience (UX), and promoting flexibility and diversity. Join us as we bring together experts and thought leaders from workplace strategy, design, space management, and environmental psychology to discuss the range of benefits ABW can bring to your workplace.
