    When: 4pm – 7pm on 13 March 2018
    Willis Towers Watson Client Center – 200 Liberty Street, New York, NY

    An intensive Workplace PIN workshop for leaders in Real Estate, FM, Workplace, HR & IT (occupiers only) who want to take an advanced approach to the creation and management of the modern workplace.

    This complimentary ‘Occupiers-Only’ session will address the strategic and tactical aspects of workplace strategy, its challenges and critical success factors, as represented by the global implementation of New Ways To Work at Willis Towers Watson.

    A facilitated discussion will follow in which guests are invited to share perspectives on  

    • Why workplace strategy means so many things to so many people?
    • What is the process and how do you make time for it?
    • What are its risks and rewards?

    And because risk-taking comes with the expectation of reward, AWA will preview their Project Performance Program, a tool for evaluating real-time data that measures not only current success, but the ongoing performance of workplace strategy within your own organization.

    The session will be followed by cocktails and a tour of New Ways To Work at Willis Towers Watson.
