2.02 How To: The Magic That Happens When HR, RE, and IT Come Together on Workplace Change
Tuesday, April 4, 2017 10:15 AM - 12:15 PM
Venue: Caesars Palace
Room: Forum 17-19

In most organizations, it wasn't a structured program that led to people working wherever and whenever. It just happened as a result of having the mobile tools that made it possible. But by letting it happen, rather than making it happen, both organizations and their people have missed out on potential cost savings, attraction and retention opportunities, productivity and effectiveness impacts, and more. Even many who have intentionally implemented flexible workplace strategies, have done so without the involvement of HR, IT, and other key constituents. Again, the result is typically less than optimal. In this session, we will hear from been-there-done-that practitioners who have made the journey to flexible work and what they learned from the experience.
