Mike Petrusky - Director of Events & Growth Marketing, iOFFICE
Workplace Paradox: Confronting Change & Challenges in 2020
The workplace is evolving rapidly and we must be in the business of rethinking the ways we care for real estate and the occupants of our facilities. We know that technology is
advancing, cultural and generational shifts are significant while the future workplace demands that our organizations deliver on an employee experience that will attract top talent.
With traditional roles being blurred, CRE professionals must focus on building a true culture of collaboration and create trusted partnerships across departmental lines in order to
succeed. After conducting dozens of interviews with some of our industry’s most forward-thinking professionals, Mike Petrusky shares inspirational leadership lessons & insights
for “workplace innovators”! Learning objectives:
• How CRE leaders deliver workplace change and encourage occupants to embrace new strategies and technologies
• How partnerships and leveraging shared expertise is a requirement if organizations are to keep pace in the “age of acceleration”
• How to encourage and inspire your workforce to celebrate our common human experiences leading to successful collaboration in the workplace

11:45 am - 12:30 pm MAIN HALL: The Purposeful Activity Based Workplace – Deconstructed

Karen Cobb - Global Real Estate, Workplace, and Projects, SAP
In this session, first we will look at the “guiding principles” of the activity based workplace and “key”
pillar owners.
• Human Resources – Team management styles and flex work programs
• IT – Tools and solutions
• Facilities – Flexible work solutions. The 4 Cs. Concentration, collaboration, concentration and community.
While all employees have needs and benefits to all of the solutions….One size does not fit all though. Understanding Purpose and Behaviors – breaking down the purpose and behaviors of functional structures… then building a balanced functional solution that supports P&B of business units planned for. E.g. A Sales Business unit may have sub-structures such as Admin, Sales and service teams; their solution must support all these functional structures.
• Administrative
• Sales Organizations
• Development (R&D)
• Service Teams (Call Centers)
Key to success – Manager/Employee Engagement
• A shift from “my workspace” to “our workspace”.
• Foster an environment of trust and inclusion. Meeting the diversity needs of a large spectrum of employees
• Cultural shift from “working in person” to “working for impact”. Moving from an attendance and task based model to a results driven judgement of work performed and delivered.
• Freedom of when, where and how we work that fosters integration and balance of work and life.
• Recruiting

3:00 pm - 3:40 pm MAIN HALL: The Power of Human Experience: Reinventing and Revitalizing Your Office Ecosystem

Ruven Gotz - Workplace Experience LEad, Avanade
The office has to energize and inspire: companies, both large and small, must consider dynamics of space, amenities, technology, but most importantly behavioral transformation.
• Studying the culture of your workforce first, procuring solutions for outfitting second.
• Next generation frameworks, enablers and partnerships that are needed to move forward.
• Attracting and retaining the best talent with stimulating office implementations.
