Augmented Work

How are the developments of robotics, machine learning, AI and automation creating new scenarios for work and workplace?

Future Worker & the Fluid Workforce

It’s estimated that 75% of the US workforce will be made up of millennials by 2030. This generational shift will transform both the demographic and mindset of the workforce into one that is truly diverse. Organisations and their leaders need to prepare for this shift – physically and psychologically – whilst also providing for the needs of their current people. WORKTECH will address emerging trends such as designing for an aging workforce, omni-learning, neurodiversity, work/life blur and the experience economy.

Changing Global Patterns of Office Space Utilization

Organizations around the world today are looking more closely than ever before at how their people use space for working. The need to drive up corporate innovation while at the same time seeking space efficiencies and driving down real estate costs has led to renewed focus on what really happens in the places, spaces and settings where work happens. WORKTECH will reflect on how different industry sectors have evolved their space strategies and what they might do in the future.

Workplace Complexity

The New York Marketplace - Workplace Complexity is rampant and clients/occupiers are seeking "clarity and coherency" to help navigate increasing Complexity. Occupier experts will share their views.

Is Working Remotely Effective?

Remote work is on the rise. The number of hours spent working off-site is increasing, as is the number of workers. More and more industries are adopting remote work policies as well, with 54% of office workers say they'd leave their job for one that offers flexible work time. Leaders and managers need to be aware that, as working remotely becomes more common, companies that can't accommodate it will become unusual. And those cultures, over time, may also struggle to keep their in-house workers engaged.


Our speakers are leading international thinkers, industry strategists and radical visionaries who come from some of today’s most successful companies as well as a broad range of progressive and influential organisations.
