15:15 – Workshop | Adopt or Adapt. Flex space: Why, how and when to embrace or even avoid?
Our research indicates that 56% of employees now work from other company premises at least once a month, followed by working from home (54%), on transport (36%) and in co-working spaces (34%). The reality is that the traditional office now actively competes with a range of alternative locations. A more liquid and contingent workforce is also accelerating this change. Estimates suggest up to 30% of the working population is already working in the on-demand or gig economy. As the composition of the workforce becomes more fluid, the need for flexible space will continue to increase.
Speaker: Viorel Opait, Business Development Director – JLL Romania

Location: Freya Room
16:45 – Workplace (Re)Generation > Mind(ful of) the gap
Too much literature on working with, leading and managing the ‘Me Me Me’ late millennials and Z’s generations? …As time goes by and the workforce demographics are ever-changing and shifting, what about the reverse? For this latter bit, this session will aim first and foremost at raising awareness and secondly at diving onto the desire of alignment in between deliberate & emergent strategies.
Speaker: Adrian Fogas – Director Accounts Receivable Europe a.i. – Office Depot Europe

16:45 – Making a difference. The Game Changer in having Engaged Employees, by Vertiv Cluj
The studies are telling that the most engaged teams are the ones where employees that find meaning and purpose in what the do. It’s the reason why so many people take NGO work, for less money, because they see how they are making a difference and this gives a lot of purpose. Through this presentation, we  are hoping to show you a few stories from our organization that hopefully will inspire you to build purpose-drive cultures in your own organization. If people see WHAT they are part of, HOW their contribution is making a difference they will tell better stories about your company, both to themselves as well as to their friends.
