The Workspace of the Future: An Ideation Session

Wednesday, May 8th, 2019 @ 2:45 pm - 4:15 pm

This session is currently full.

What’s it all about? Imagine where you’ll be working 5, 10, 15 years from now. Does the workspace look, feel, or operate in the same way yours does today? The future of our workspace will almost certainly be different – but just how different will it be? Join this interactive ideation session and play the role of futurist to design the workplace of tomorrow. Presenters Mari Ryan (AdvancingWellness) and Renee Piazza (Collective Next) will engage participants in considering current workforce trends such as work/life blend, the gig economy, and new “built environment” standards to create a vision for the workplace of the future, with employee well-being as a foundational element.

Why you’ll want to participate in this session.

  • Identify human capital management, technology, and social trends that impact the workforce and workplace.
  • Identify the elements of the workplace of the future that support and encourage employee wellbeing.
  • Discover how employees can engage in idea-generating techniques to help design the workplace of the future.

Approved for SHRM credit and HRCI general (HR) credit.
