This year’s 5th annual Workplace Innovation Summit delves into the pervasive technology that surrounds us in the workplace and how that technology is transforming the way we work. How will we redesign the workplace while we are in the middle of an impending cultural shift in the future of work? Virtual reality is revolutionizing architecture and office design, paving the way for more holistic floor plans, and creative use of space. The rise of artificial intelligence in the workplace and the automation of entire industries spells the importance of soft skills and design that AI can’t replicate. Once the streets are lined with self-driving cars and office communication is at our fingertips on our phones, how do we maintain balance when the lines between work and home become blurred. The rise of technology affects us all; how will you apply it effectively in your own organization? At this hands-on Summit, you will learn more about the technology that surrounds us, and receive tools and content to share and educate others.


Here is an inside look of last years summit!

Last year we kicked off the day with a lively discussion about workplace strategy with leaders from Gensler and Reebok. Joe Mechlinski, CEO & Founder of SHIFT, explored the future of the workplace including disruptions from artificial intelligence and virtual reality.

Collectively we Q-stormed questions around key workplace topics which our Workplace Innovation Think Tank has explored over the course of the year. We have taken those questions to guide 2019 Workplace Innovation: Transforming Technology.
