HR Committee: Employee Engagement and the Role of Space
(Registration has not yet opened for this event)
Studies show that improving employee engagement is a challenge that all organizations face. From these studies, we also know that engaged employees improve a company’s bottom line. And we know that employee engagement and satisfaction with the workspace are correlated.
So what if we could improve our bottom line by simply rearranging our workplaces?
Jeffrey Saunders, Director at Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies, is an expert in work and workplace strategy, who will talk about the future trends affecting work, workforce and workplace that highlight why employee engagement matters.
Peter Ankerstjerne, Chief Marketing Officer, ISS, will talk about their own workplace transformation utilizing the backdrop of their new offices in Søborg, which recently rated as one of the highest in the Leesman Index, the largest independent collection of workplace effectiveness data in the world.
And finally Beatriz Arantes, Environmental Psychologist and Research Lead at Steelcase, will facilitate a work session to identify one small step you can take today to modify your own workplace to further your organizational goals.
Join us for an event with experts who will focus on the strategic management of space – and what a workplace transformation could mean for your business.
