12:30 pm - 1:30 pm LUNCH

Spend 30 minutes at two round tables of your choice for a more focused discussion on some of the most exciting workplace trends but also allowing you to diver deeper into some of your most pressing workplace challenges!

INTERACTIVE DISCUSSION GROUP 1: 
DESIGNING AT THE SPEED OF BUSINESS  
Led by POPPIN
Join moderators Jeff Miller, VP of Product Design at Poppin, and David Branham, Sr. Director of Merchandising at Poppin, to explore the implications of designing for high-growth companies.

INTERACTIVE DISCUSSION GROUP 2: 
THE DIGITAL WORKPLACE: TRANSFORMING THE EMPLOYEE EXPERIENCE 
Led by CURRENT, POWERED BY GE 
Gone are the days when the workplace was merely a physical space that employees occupied during the normal 9-5 grind. Today, companies are looking for ways to connect their employees with each other and the office to drive productivity. To accurately reflect this evolving work experience, organizations have begun to implement an entirely new work environment: The Digital Workplace. By integrating the technologies that employees use (email, environmental controls, workflow management tools, virtual meeting tech, etc.) with a sensor-enabled environment, companies are able to connect their employees with one another to increase collaboration and productivity, enhance the ease of use of the physical workplace, and create a more welcoming environment.

INTERACTIVE DISCUSSION GROUP 3:
First 30 minutes: MEASURE TWICE, BUILD ONCE: THE SCIENCE BEHIND OCCUPANT FOCUSED SPECIFICATION TO ACHIEVE IMPROVED BUILDING PERFORMANCE, OCCUPANT PRODUCTIVITY AND PERCEPTION 
Led by CertainTeed / Saint Gobain
“We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.” Winston Churchill What if we put consideration of the occupants first in the decision-making process? In this roundtable we will share some lessons learned with regard to which environmental aspects were more or less influential in determining the overall outcomes of our new North American Headquarters. We will also speak to why design and product specification were based on how the occupants would feel, respond and perceive the new working environment. We will share data and occupant survey results that show that putting people first is the right order when it comes to creating spaces for companies to thrive. There have been so many advances in the materials we use to build our world that almost every surface can contribute to helping you shape the office of the future – today. 

Second 30 minutes: MANAGING CHANGE IN THE CHANGING OFFICE ENVIRONMENT:  ENGAGING OCCUPANTS TO ADVOCATE FOR THE UNKNOWN 
Led by CertainTeed / Saint Gobain
Where is my new desk?  Will I have the privacy I need to do my job?  What’s for lunch in the new cafeteria?  These questions, while they may seem small compared to “How much will this new office cost?”, are the ones that affect the daily lives of your employees.  By implementing a process of Volunteers and “Voluntolds” to engage the majority of your occupants in the decision-making process of a new office design, the employees themselves can be your strongest advocates in creating a productive and engaging corporate culture. In this session we will share the process we used across the manyl layers of decisions, communication and change management when moving to a new office environment. From material and system selection, furniture, fitness center equipment, processes, menus, and third party contractors to best practices and on-boarding procedures, we will discuss how to facilitate employee empowerment and the results that can come from putting the people in charge.
