About the event

FT Live is reimagining office environments with its Future of Work series. With the new year ushering in hopes for a return to the office, many businesses continue to reshape and iterate their future workplace strategy. While timelines remain uncertain, it is clear that physical spaces will no longer serve the same purpose. Businesses must make bold and informed decisions around their real estate and rethink how they use physical spaces. Many will need to leverage new design concepts and technologies to create productive, convenient and collaborative spaces.

On June 7th, 2021, Future of Work: The Workplace will be exploring how companies like BNP, Trivago, Lego, and many more will be redefining the ‘workplace’  in the year ahead.

Sabine Ehm, Locatee’s Thought Leadership and Research Manager will be participating in a panel with Tim Yendell, BP’s Vice President of Workplace Transformation, and Chris Kane, author of ‘Where’s My Office?” to discuss what the blueprint for the future office is.
