May 15, 8:00 – 10:00 – Breakfast Meeting in SASKATOON with remote access from REGINA

  • Failure to Launch: The Critical Role of FM in Leading Workplace Transformation, presented by Meredith Thatcher, CFM, LEED® AP, IFMA Fellow, President, Thatcher Workplace ConsultingMobility is being embraced by organizations around the world: it’s a legitimate means to save rent and attract talent—however—workplace transformation fails when the business doesn’t transition at the same time. Workplace transformation requires integration across the organization and more importantly the political prowess needed to navigate a multifunctional solution. The FM is often unsupported when required to perform a function that has advanced to embrace non-traditional knowledge areas.Organizations must transition their business in alignment with the workplace transformation. When they don’t the ROI is insufficient, the organization strategy stalls, and the talent starts to ‘hack their way’ to their own solutions. FM, IT, HR, change management and training all must contribute to the solutions at the same time – as any enabler omitted becomes the missing link to success. This session will cover the necessary components of a business transformation to achieve successful launch of a mobility program.
  • Presented at Stantec, 75 – 24th Street E, Saskatoon, with video conferencing to Stantec’s Regina office, 400- 1820 Hamilton Street
