This year’s Workplace Week, the annual week-long celebration of workplace innovation organised by AWA to raise money for Children in Need, started on Monday, November 3.


The week includes:

A programme of 90 minute ‘working workplace’ tours involving some of the UK’s most innovative workplaces including Google, Mintel, Innocent Drinks, BDO, Edelman, Lloyds of London, Guardian Newspapers, CBI, Invesco, Prostate Cancer, and PWC Embankment Place. 

A one-day convention at PWC’s More London office near London Bridge on Thursday 6 November:  The Work/place Revolution….taking human performance to new levels

The Workplace Week Reception 1730-2030 after the convention on Thursday

A selection of inspirational Fringe events hosted by Herman Miller, Kinnarps and Humanscale


It’s not too late to book your place to the tours and the convention. Sign up at


The convention will focus on taking human performance to new levels, with inspirational speakers offering case studies, insights and new research. If you can’t make the whole day, then why not pop along to the reception from 4.30pm and discuss the new Workplace Management Standard over a glass of wine? If you’ve been to any other Workplace Week event, the reception is free to attend. You can hear from all those involved in the development of the new management standard for the management of the workplace and how it’s being used in practice to develop excellence programmes and review organisations’ operations.

Children in Need

The inaugural Workplace Week in 2009 happened after Andrew Mawson, AWA’s managing director, watched Children in Need and had the idea for a workplace-related event raising money for the charity.

Mawson said: “Workplace Week has fast become an absolute must in the professional calendar since AWA launched the first one in 2009. Through fantastic support from sponsors and everyone who has participated in the last few years we have raised a whopping amount for Children in Need. Workplace Week 2013 raised £11,500 for the charity, and with Workplace Week 2014 we hope to raise at least £15,000 and create an even bigger spectacle.”
