Change Your Space, Change Your Culture: How Engaging Workplaces Lead to Transformation and Growth

Presented by: Rex Miller, Author and Thought Leader

The purpose of Change Your Space (CYS) is to change the conversation about the true conditions of the workplace. Sitcoms, comic strips and movies lampoon office work. However, a quick look behind the jokes clearly reveals the conditions that drain corporate vitality…leading to high levels of employee disengagement.
Over the past two years, more than thirty leaders from some of the most recognized companies in America invested time and resources to focus on these issues. Rex’s forthcoming book, to be published in October, is the result of all this work. Rex will share his learnings and conclusions.

Beyond the call of duty: How to create a truly sustainable workplace

Presented by: Dr. Marie Puybaraud, Director of Global WorkPlace Innovation – Johnson Controls

The motivation for companies to act sustainably is driven, largely, by legislation (law) and the desire to maintain public image and reputation. As a result, their actions are driven by duty and obligation, and measured and communicated in material terms of cost and investment. This is not sensible or sustainable ! The painful truth is that today’s workplaces – with their vast energy needs and ever changing requirements – are at the beginning of their sustainability journey. Sustainability should be part of an organisation’s culture. It is a human endeavour.

Johnson Controls sustainability@work survey investigates the attitudes of 4,000 people in six countries – from senior execs to junior staff – to identify how companies can engage employees and encourage them to act more sustainably. This webinar will present the results of the survey and provide to the members of IFMA steps to take to engage their employees in sustainability in the workplace.
