Get ahead of the shift with the 2015 Queen's IRC Workplace in Motion Summit

We have reached an important turning point in the world of work - a time when organizational success is no longer defined by economies of scale and efficiency, but by the ability to learn and innovate. Technology is transforming how we work and what we do. Global competition is the new normal. By 2020, millennials will make up half of our workforce. How do we prepare for this shift?

The 2015 Workplace in Motion Summit creates a space for discussing these issues and exploring new strategies and structures for a changing workplace. The day will include an exploration of key trends in technology, global competition, generational flux and the knowledge economy, along with valuable opportunities to network with colleagues. Discover what pioneering organizations are doing to connect and leverage talent, and learn what you and your organization can do to thrive in the future.

Summit Chair Brenda Barker Scott and Queen’s IRC Director Paul Juniper will lead group discussions, along with workshop facilitators Diane Locke, Françoise Morissette and Anne Grant, who will delve more deeply into human resources, organizational development and labour relations issues. “Our bold agenda for this first Workplace in Motion Summit is to create space for re-thinking, reflecting and re-imagining,” says Barker Scott. “We’ll be challenging individuals and teams to view their systems from new perspectives.”

The Summit is designed specifically for human resources, labour relations and organizational development professionals, as well as the leaders in their organizations. It’s ideal for organizations who want to bring colleagues from HR, LR and OD, as well as current and future leaders who will leave inspired to lead change together.
