The world we live and work in today is drastically different to the one we knew 20, 10 or even 5 years ago – and the speed of change is increasing all the time. 

Nowhere is this truer than in the workplace.  Complex factors and emerging trends – from the social to the technological – are reshaping the way we work and the environments in which we work.

Facilities management can take the lead here, ensuring all this change produces positive outcomes for both people and organisations. But is FM ready for that? How well do we understand and manage change now? What will be the defining issues of the 21st century workplace? What does FM need to do to become a true agent of change?

By bringing together a panel of carefully selected expert speakers and an audience of FM leaders, Workplace Futures 2016 made a significant contribution to answering questions such as these – the same questions that are shaping the future of both the industry and the profession.
