Workplace Week International 2020, held between 9-12 November, is a virtual festival that celebrates global workplace transformation. 

Siemens Global, Max Life Insurance, Skyscanner and Deloitte are some of the global organisations that will give the virtual delegates of Workplace Week International 2020 a window into their future workplace strategy.

The four-day festival will showcase how world-leading organisations are navigating the challenges of 2020, transforming their workplace models and using science, innovation and new working practices to enhance employee wellbeing, sustainability and business performance.


"The goal is to celebrate workplace transformation, arm business leaders with new knowledge and raise lots of money for worthwhile causes.”

Twenty Corporate Workplace Change Case Studies


Organised by Advanced Workplace Associates (AWA), the programme consists of 20+ virtual corporate case studies, cornerstone panel sessions with leading industry experts, and sponsor events. 

The week will shine a light on how organisations are transforming their workplace models, technology and infrastructure against a backdrop of COVID-19, globalisation, climate change, and significant socio-economic change.

All proceeds through registration will be donated to the festival’s international charity partners: BBC Children in Need in the UK; Make a Wish in France, Brazil, Switzerland and India; and the I Have a Dream Foundation in the US – boosting the $100,000+ total already raised to date in the UK and US throughout Workplace Week’s 10-year legacy.

The goal is to celebrate workplace transformation, arm business leaders with new knowledge and raise lots of money for worthwhile causes.”
