Cost pressures, especially in tough economic conditions, mean that businesses must ensure all their staff are motivated and focused on creating value while at work. Holding onto experienced and skilled staff is also important to maintain quality and contain costs. Building on this, the best employers recognise the benefits of two-way flexibility to ensure they can provide quality services when customers need them. New ways of working have spread rapidly over the past decade, driven by the demands of the 24/7 economy and technological advances. Alongside the people aspect of the business, the physical workplace has dramatically changed over the past 5 years with the rise of flexible working, mobility and co-working.

This conference will look at not only the processes and technology Function Heads need to look at to ensure an agile workplace, but also the knock on effects of the wider business, with cross function sessions designed to bring the most value to the whole decision making unit to ensure a cohesive strategy.
