The Changing Workplace
Rapidly evolving technologies are now enabling employees who have been in a traditional office setting to work anytime and anywhere. Organizations are experiencing a growing need for flexibility in how they can use their available space and building assets.

Building on the success of the first of these Summits, held in 2012 at Cornell University and the second held in Reading in the UK, and co-sponsored by the University College London in 2014, this event will be a way to further the conversation on the workplace. The conference will facilitate an exchange of views of experts and practitioners with emphasis on global trends, new design concepts, leadership and employee well-being.
