Member Benefit Live Webinar: Don't Waste a Good Crisis

  • Dates: 21 Oct, 2014

Available to IFMA Members Only

This month, we invite you to join us for an interactive and comprehensive webinar on insight into how companies can proactively build more flexibility into the workplace, titled, "Don't Waste a Good Crisis."

Knowing that political, social and economic changes can be just as capricious and destructive as natural disasters, Mancini Duffy’s Center for Workplace Innovation explores how design professionals can lead the charge for radical transformation by incorporating new roles, methods and disciplines into their practices that will help clients make better decisions in order to future-proof their work environments.

The program cites examples of how the devastation of Hurricane Sandy forced companies to temporarily work in ways that were completely alien to their corporate cultures. As a result, they completely transformed their thinking about the built environment.
