The Productive Workplace: UX, Technology and You

Monday, March 16
11:00AM - 12:00PM

JW Marriott
Salon 1
110 E 2nd St

Are you constantly devising work-arounds so you and your team can get work done in your workplace? Would you be more productive, collaborative, satisfied if you could choose from a variety of places and spaces in the office to hunker down and get to work based on your task at hand? Yes, you would! Recent research shows that employee choice in the workplace is the single factor that vastly improves employee productivity and satisfaction. But what is a choice-based workplace and how can employees and organizations create one? Our expert panel including a leading UX designer, a workplace architect, and a noted technologist debate the realities of the choice-based workplace – from how to (and how not to) define and design an experience of choice in the workplace, to the technology available today and on the horizon to support it, and indeed, when choice is too much of a good thing at the office.
