The 12 Building Blocks Of The New Workplace 

Caroline Morris, Associate, Project Manager, Clive Wilkinson ArchitectsAmber Wernick, Associate, Clive Wilkinson Architects

After a year of uncertainty in the pandemic, two things are clear – the office will live on, and we will not be returning to the way things were. The COVID-19 remote working experiment has put into focus what can – and can’t – be done without a physical workplace. The powerful social and collaborative benefits the workplace offers have also made themselves painfully clear as many of us have been forced to get by without them. This is an opportunity to transform and redefine the workplace – what parts we have outgrown and should be discarded and what new opportunities we can embrace. Our team has created the New Workplace Kit of Parts – 12 reimagined spaces to support and enhance new ways of working in the post-COVID-19 workplace.

Implementing Mixed Reality to enable the Workplace 

Andy Repton, Executive Director, Product Management & Innovation, JPMorgan Chase

 The era of virtual and augmented reality might finally be upon us. After years of promises and false starts, Covid-19 has driven a record number of workers remotely and could usher in the regular use of Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) at home and in the workplace. This session will discuss how organisations can invest in virtual reality technology and virtual environments to support their future workplace strategies and enhance employee experience.

Sessions include

State of the Workplace 

Philip Ross, Futurologist & CEO, Cordless Group & UNWORK

WORKTECH is founded on the  principle  that  a  harmony  of  people,  place  and,  above  all, technology should form the basis for how organisations plan the future of work. Amid the global pandemic, this vision has swum into focus as companies have pivoted to a  new  model  with  remote  working  and  a  hybrid model at  its  core.  In this session, Philip Ross will share how marginal ideas have become mainstream and by sharing an overview of emerging trends and latest innovations shaping the world of work, he will paint a portrait of the transforming landscape and share tools on how companies can embrace the New World of Work to create new paradigms for workplace
