Workplace Strategy and Organizational Development

Workplace Strategy, the alignment of physical space, technology, business process and work practices, is becoming an increasingly important factor in enabling business performance. A changing business landscape, new ways of working, and shifting workforce expectations now require us to rethink decades old workplace environments that no longer support our work. As a result, many high performance organizations now treat their work environment as a strategic asset that can:

  • Strengthen organizational culture
  • Increase employee satisfaction and engagement
  • Increase access to talent
  • Increase productivity

Join us for a presentation and discussion on:

  1. The impact of workplace strategy in organizational development
  2. Key workplace strategy trends, including increasing HR leadership in workplace initiatives
  3. The role of workplace strategy in business transformation and organizational change
