Workplace Learning Theater—Picture This: Workplace Beyond the Boundaries
HOK Director of WorkPlace Kay Sargent, ASID, IIDA, CID, LEED AP, MCR.w
More and more corporations are seeking to push the boundaries and position themselves globally with work environments that not only address their culture and functional needs, but establish ties across regions. The speed of change is driving a need for more agile solutions. To meet today’s needs, corporations need to think outside the box and outside traditional office boundaries.

Workplace: Productivity Asset or Cost Liability?
HOK Director of WorkPlace Gordon Wright with Tim Oldman and Dr. Peggie Rothe of the Leesman Index
While it is common for organizations to view their people costs as an investment in an asset, property struggles to make that transition. This has led to a cycle of cost reduction. But as this continues and investment in workplaces decreases, are companies limiting the impact their people can have on the organization? What is needed to change the mindset of business leaders on property being a cost liability to one in which it is viewed as a productivity asset?

Robyn BaxterTuesday, October 18, 3:45 – 4:45 p.m.
The Resilient Workplace: Engagement and the Global Workplace
HOK Regional Leader of Consulting Robyn Baxter
Senior business leaders are attempting to build cultures that lead to more resilient organizations that can respond to market conditions while also reinventing and innovating ahead of the market. This level of resiliency demands employees who are highly engaged. Businesses need people who come to work energized and who are ready every day to generate new ideas, create new strategies and make meaningful progress.
