IFMA Foundation has published the sequel to Work on the Move at IFMA's World Workplace Conference in San Diego. Alexi Marmot contributed the chapter on workplace trends around the world to Work on the Move 2: How Social, Leadership and Technology Innovations are Transforming the Workplace in the Digital Economy
The new book is the collaborative effort of 15 international experts in the fields of workplace strategy, human capital, real estate, technology and business. The book helps organisations prepare for the future of work, workers and the workplace.
Topics covered include: the latest global workplace trends, leadership changes, as well as the changes occurring in social responsibility; the increased importance of employee well-being; the silo-busting going on in real estate, human resources, information technology, and facility management groups to lead workplace change; new technologies being experimented and deployed for greater productivity and engagement of workplace professionals; and a day in the life of a future ‘placemaker’.
Co-editors Nancy Johnson Sanquist and Diane Coles Levine had a vision for the first edition of Work on the Move, to “raise awareness within the facility management profession and create a vibrant movement of disparate, forward-thinking professionals dedicated to improving the workplace.” This book was the catalyst for the creation of the IFMA Workplace Evolutionaries (WE), and two Workplace Strategy Summits; the first held at Cornell University and the second in cooperation with University College London.
The vision for the second edition is wider: to raise consciousness and create alliances between the various professions involved (human resources, finance, information technology etc) to work together to create high-performing workplaces
Sponsored by FM:Systems, Kimball Office, Planon, and Trimble, as well as other organisations, 100% of the proceeds of the book will support the mission of the IFMA Foundation’s Global Workforce Initiative (GWI).
