Work on the Move

 

“Work on the Move 3” is a collaborative effort of 19 internationally renowned experts in the fields of workplace strategy, human capital, real estate, technology and business. Topics covered include innovation and revolution in the location of workplaces and real estate, and emerging trends in the FM business model.

The concepts shared in the book are intended to help executives and managers lead their companies through a critical workplace transformation in a post-pandemic world.

It will address challenges in ensuring health and wellbeing, environment, diversity and inclusion for all workplace occupants. It covers health challenges during and after the pandemic, and the increased appreciation of the role of facilities managers in maintaining safe and healthy workplaces. The important part that buildings play in reducing our environmental footprint to avert global heating is also addressed. 

The preview chapter is available here.

“We believe that by bringing the brightest minds from varied disciplines together, we can create new ideas and business models in preparation for this new future of work in a post-pandemic world,” said Michael Schley.

Sponsored by Planon, FM:Systems, Michael and Karen Schley Foundation, NanSan Foundation, Unispace, IFMA’s Workplace Evolutionaries (WE), as well as other organisations, 100 per cent of the book’s proceeds will support the mission of the IFMA Foundation’s Global Workforce Initiative (GWI)
