EVENT OVERVIEW

Future Workplace Forum 2016

Invisible Offices, Tangible Productivity

There is a distinct change being observed in the way people work and the way businesses operate – the most forward-looking enterprises have hacked away at the strictures of rigid work schedules and geographic limitations. Management, HR, and technology and design experts are coming together to transform workplaces and work-styles, redefining productivity in the post-industrial age.

From young CEOs sitting in remote rural outposts running globally-distributed enterprises to centuries-old conservative companies needing a complete re-think of deeply-entrenched job functions — the stories of the rapidly-transforming workplace are diverse and varied.

The Future Workplace Forum 2016, in its third year, will seek to tap into the spirit of this transformation. Join us, in the company of your C-suite peers and HR, design, technology and innovation experts, to hear some from some of the most forward-thinking agencies and enterprises as they share their journeys of entering the 21st century work environment. Cross-functional dialogue, new ideas around collaboration and analytics, technology exchanges, brand strategy, and much more – the Future Workplace Forum promises to be a melting pot of game-changing ideas that might just inspire a paradigm shift in the way your company operates.

Taking place in Singapore on 2 June 2016, this Forum will discuss the latest trends and pressing concerns in creating a workplace for tomorrow in today’s digital era. This event will feature two concurrent tracks on Technology and Talent Management, and gather over 150 senior business and technology leaders from cross-industry for a day of insightful presentations, case studies, best practices and incisive panel discussions.
