    10:30–15:30 on 21 March 2018 at The Home Office, London

    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.

    The Issue: As the world relies more heavily on the knowledge work community, we need to provide the right conditions for them to do their best work. This is not a “nice to have” – it is highly strategic and will be of particular interest to senior leaders. Given the importance of the workplace to organisational success, this demands new approaches, skill sets and processes from those managing the workplace.

    We will consider what the next generation workplace will deliver, what new workplace management practices are required and how to manage ‘experiences’ in a rapidly changing business world. We’ll provide you with a framework and process for developing and enhancing your organisation. A modern workplace should be delivering significant organisational benefits and competitive advantage – but to do so, the management of the workplace needs to be front and centre – not in the background as a cost absorbing “necessary evil”.

    Workshop Aims

    1. Identifying what workplace management can do to create the right conditions for knowledge workers

    2. Providing workplace leaders with a practical model for the future

    3. Showing how to evolve towards the model using new tools, techniques, capabilities and understanding

    4. Demonstrating the Workplace Management Framework (WMF) and illustrating how it can be used

    5. Sharing a case study where the WMF was used as part of a current state assessment by Infineum UK Ltd (world leader in the formulation, manufacture and marketing of petroleum additives for lubricants and fuels).
