IFMA Carolinas Joint Meeting with John Gaulden and Carrie Renegar of Gensler Charlotte

When: 03/11/2021 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM

Workplace with Heart: Driving New Competitive Advantages
with John Gaulden, Co-Managing Director, Principal, Gensler Charlotte and 
Carrie Renegar, Design Director, Gensler Charlotte

Join us as we introduce a new way of thinking about how we design the experience of work in offices and beyond, prompted by the pandemic but inspired by a vision for something more equitable, engaging, and effective than ever before. This new approach challenges traditional planning models to rethink space utilization and emphasize the human experience value to better engage employees and attract new talent. We will explore how the future of work can bring people, place, and technology together to remove old barriers and put employees at the heart of the workplace. Gensler will be using an interactive polling tool, Mentimeter, to engage with us. You may want to invite your IT colleagues to join us to learn more about the concepts presented.
