About the Program:
Multinational organizations are challenged to create a workspace strategy that is cost-effective and reasonable to manage - yet also respects employee expectations for office space. To assist, Knoll embarked on an international study of over 20,000 workers to understand the aspects of workspace design, technology and policy they most highly value. This research explores similarities and differences between North American workers, and employees in 12 regions (40 countries).
Join us as we discuss this research, its recommendations, and practical implications. The panel includes Dr. Michael O'Neill from Knoll, who will present this study. Jeanette Dettling from Medtronic and Kathleen Linderkamp from Ameriprise Financial will bring their real-world perspectives in developing global workplace strategies.
