As organizations prepare to welcome people back to their physical locations, they must incorporate learnings from the past year. New ways of working have emerged, including fully distributed and hybrid digital-physical workplaces, offering new opportunities to support long-term individual and organizational thriving. Join Melissa Marsh, Founder and Executive Director of PLASTARC, a social research, workplace innovation, and real estate strategy consultancy, for an interactive workshop in which we will discuss how to optimize this transition in the months ahead.

Topics include:

  • Making the most of telework now
  • Supporting organizations' office reentry in safe and effective ways
  • Exploring how human behavior and building systems can work together for the best outcomes
  • Engaging clients in conversation and predictions around the opportunities of long-term telework and future environments to support this
  • You'll walk away equipped with an understanding of best practices and design principles needed to transition smoothly to a better, higher-performing workplace experience.
