Smart Workplace Session #10: Flexibility & Choice as Workplace Strategy

Nov 15, 2021 11:49:32 AM

Responsible management of real estate assets, while empowering workers to productively create the best possible public services effectively, was at the heart of the 10th webinar in our Smart Workplace Sessions series, when we spoke with Kasper Fabritius, Head of Solution Sales, Sales and Marketing Manager at Senate Properties. As a recap, see the full webinar recording from November 10th, and get closer look at a case study in workplace strategy in the public sector, and at how multi-faceted objectives all tie into a future workplace - based on flexibility and choice.

The Finnish government, already a pioneer in activity-based and flexible working globally, has recently been updating its policy on distributed working for government employees in its 'Multi-locational Working Guidelines' in support of its new 'Public Services Strategy'. These are some of the strong drivers for change in the way government workers will work and public services are delivered in the future - and these will have a strong impact on the workplace and real estate strategies going forward. To lead the way for others, the Senate Properties, the state owned property and asset management entity as well as the work environment partner and specialist of the Finnish government, is simultaneously setting high standards on incorporating environmental, societal and financial responsibility - as well as cultural heritage - into its strategies.

#11. Principles of Hybrid Work in Banking - Case OP Group

Revolution or evolution? The path toward flexible working practices and a hybrid work model is not as straight forward and clear cut as some might imagine. There is no ready model to implement, no blueprint to follow, no silver bullet to solve all questions. But there are some principles one can use. Some frameworks to use as guides. Best practices for getting organized to lead holistic change. Some processes and methods to use. And good leading examples to draw inspiration from. Even for industries that may appear more conservative than others at times - such as the banking sector. If they can do it, can't we all? 

A webinar on the principles of hybrid working in banking - featuring OP Group.
