Dear Guests,

How does work look in the future? What are the latest trends and developments? What influence does corporate culture have on employee satisfaction and productivity? And what opportunities do new technologies offer? Let’s explore these and other current questions at our Future Workplace Conference. Be inspired by workplace and technology experts from business and science. Discuss exciting topics around working environment of the future with us.

Efficiency, productivity and flexibility - these were the buzzwords of the past few years and key drivers for companies to change their working environments. This strategy took account of financial and constructional possibilities but rarely the people and their individual needs. The result: work environments made for companies but not for people. The trend reversal is here - people are returning as the central focus. Companies have realized that the satisfied and powerful employee is the key to long-term business success.

Topics such as branding, corporate culture, ergonomics and health, innovation, technology and sustainability are therefore on the agenda of future-oriented companies. Our guest advisors from UBER, Facebook, Nordea, MediaCom, mBank and Allegro provide you with interesting insights into the changing processes of modern companies and highlight successful concepts and strategies.
