Who should attend?

The name Workplace & Facilities Expo 2020 (incorporating FM Ireland) reflects changing demands on businesses not only to provide functioning and effective facilities but ones that enhance the employee experience, improve wellbeing, increase staff loyalty and reduce staff turnover.

Given the growing demand within the construction sector, it is even more important to find the right employee and create an environment which ensures loyalty and reduces sickness and staff turnover.

Managers have become more aware that it is not just the pay package that secures an employee’s productivity and loyalty, it the culture of the organisation. One which recognises their needs, stresses and lifestyle can make the difference in attracting and keeping good, motivated and healthy employees.

Changing Work Environment

Facilitating this is the development of technology, which is allowing organisations to adopt different work practices that enhance the employee experience. Whether that is through the adoption of Remote Working or Flexible Working.

Or by reducing the amount of unnecessary travel through Flexible working, increased use of Conference calls and the ability to log into the company’s shared drives and facilitating remote working.
