Workplace Application:
Attendees will learn how to identify elements of the workplace of the future that support and encourage employee well-being and engagement—and how to create meaningful change. 

Just how different will tomorrow’s workplace be? Today, the lines between work and life are increasingly blurring. There are many human capital, macro-economic and technology trends that impact the workplace, including how people are employed, such as through the gig economy; newly built environmental standards, such as the WELL Building Standard, that consider the people in the workplace in all aspects of building design and operation; a workplace culture focus on diversity and inclusion; and technology trends that include artificial intelligence and robotics. In this interactive session, you will play the role of futurist to design the workplace of the future with employee well-being as a foundation. You will work in three “thinking spaces" focused on physical space, employee experience, technology and culture.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify human capital management, technology and social trends that impact the workforce and workplace.
  • Identify how the workplace can be designed with employee well-being as a core element.
  • Identify how idea generation techniques can be used to gather viewpoints and qualitative data.
