Free Dimensions – The New Dynamics of Workspace
Innovative one day conference at The bfi IMAX, Central London 27 June 2002

As UK productivity stays stubbornly low compared with its European and American partners, what is holding back so many British organisations? In many cases the answer is all around us: SPACE.

It’s an undeniable fact that if we want to create world-class organisations with maximised performance, we need to be courageous when addressing the workplace itself. Until now this crucial subject has received relatively little attention.

The Work Foundation, formerly The Industrial Society, combines leading-edge analysis of the modern workplace with practical experience of what inspiring and successful businesses and public sector organisations look like today. It is a new kind of organisation - part research institute, part business consultancy, part advocate. The Work Foundation takes the original vision and purpose of The Industrial Society building on that proud heritage to create a distinctive and authoritative voice on work for the 21st Century.

The Work Foundation’s unique one day conference will turn existing practice on its head and promote revolutionary concepts to help business develop radical strategies to support and strengthen business aims in the 21st century . The conference is aimed at Chief Executives, Senior Executives, Change Agents, Senior Facilities Managers, HR Professionals, Architects and Designers from large corporations and small creative organisations alike.

The conference brings together eminent experts in the field including Dr Frank Duffy, Founder of DEGW Lord Richard Rogers and Max Nathan, Futures Researcher, The Work Foundation to comprehensively examine the key current issues. Topics will include:

City, mobile and virtual working
Maximising space management
Pecking order: the political economy of the office
Organisational culture and its impact on business performance
