Workshift & Smart Commute

Did you know?

Work isn’t a place you go, it’s a thing you do

How will your organization compete for and retain the best and brightest new talent? How will our region prepare for the Toronto 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games?

Metrolinx invites you to this interactive event on the opportunities provided by flexible work, including:

  • reducing operating and infrastructure costs
  • increasing employee productivity and retention
  • improving business resiliency
  • decreasing your organization’s overall environmental footprint

Join the discussion. Understand the trends and how you can benefit from a flexible work program. This engaging event will include a combination of a keynote, presentations, and an interactive panel discussion. The event is designed for you to interact with international experts on how to begin designing a flexible work pilot for your organization. This is not theory, it is your opportunity to roll up your sleeves and work with the experts.

Panelists:
This esteemed panel of national thought-leaders will share how organizations implement flexible work programs. They will discuss the value proposition of adopting a more flexible work culture, and provide best practices for overcoming resistance, avoiding pitfalls and building a business case for leveraging flexible work in your organization.
