“The accelerating pace of change is driving a wedge between managements’ vision of the workplace and the reality experienced by workers. Most workplaces are not designed to efficiently or effectively evolve as the dynamics of business change. Facility management professionals will have a key role to play in ensuring that workplaces are continuously aligned with core organizations’ changing needs”
- Jeffrey Scott Saunders, Futurist, Senior Executive Advisor, Head of Strategy and Innovation at Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies.
ISS 2020 Vision ‘New Ways of Working - the workplace of the future’ analyses the boundaries that define traditional and future workplaces and organizations. Increasingly, employees work from the office, home and third workplaces; they work in private offices and open offices as well as from hot desks and touchdown points. Meanwhile, mobile devices are overtaking the laptop and the PC as our primary interfaces to the digital world.
The white book, ‘New Ways of Working - the workplace of the future‘ is based on in-depth research and a global survey among more than 600 Facility Management experts. The release coincides with the opening of the IFMA’s World Workplace Conference and Expo in Philadelphia, USA today.
