Earlier this week, news broke of the inaugural Modern Work Summit. Scheduled for September 20 to 21 at the Caribe Royale in Orlando, Fla., the in-person event will gather today’s biggest enterprise leaders. Over two days, they’ll knowledge-share challenges they’ve navigated and opportunities they foresee across the future of work. The event will support a community of professionals led by Mercedes-AMG Petronas, Microsoft, Zoom, Crestron, Steelcase, Accenture and others.

Exploring Emerging Trends, Successful Strategies

The Modern Work Summit seeks to explore emerging trends and successful strategies that will help organizations tackle modern workplaces. Over the past few years, many organizations of course have embraced hybrid work. As a result, the need for collaboration solutions has become paramount in everyday workflows. Nevertheless, most organizations have not developed a formal and comprehensive strategy around how they deploy or plan to benefit from workplace technology. Indeed, according to Dimension Data, 60% fit that description.

The Modern Work Summit brings together digital workplace leaders to participate in networking conversations among peers. In addition, they’ll hear from the experts during tailored sessions full of actionable insights.

What follows are some featured sessions and panels:

  • A spotlight on the digital transformation of the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team.
  • A Participant Equality panel focusing on the employee experience, regardless of location
  • A presentation from Steelcase on the psychology of space and employee culture
  • Employee Experience panel exploring what’s required for employee success
  • A session with Accenture on reinventing the workplace
  • A panel discussion around Space Utilization, evaluating how to get the best value from your spaces
  • A Security and Scale panel offering different perspectives on how to navigate new workplace technology requirements.

Thoughtfully Designed Spaces

The modern workplace scales beyond brick-and-mortar offices. Instead, today’s employees require thoughtfully designed spaces with ergonomic setups and integrated technology solutions. These spaces should encourage collaboration, no matter where participants may be. Employers now must design a cohesive and consistent work environment that is scalable and secure. This creates a streamlined workflow, supports productivity and builds morale, enabling experiences that attract new employees and support employee retention.

The real estate, technology and furniture that outfit these spaces are expected to be long-term investments. Naturally, therefore, they must be chosen and designed intentionally, bearing in mind the needs of today’s workers. The Modern Work Summit will explore the most up-to-date concepts to provide attendees with the tools and knowledge to create environments that maximize organizations’ potential.

The Modern Work Summit costs $400 per attendee. With that, registrants enjoy full event access. Space limitations apply. For more information and registration details, visit www.modernworksummit.com.
