Return to Work: Work the data!

June 26 from 1:00 - 2:00 pm EST

What does a safe return to work look like? The unprecedented unknowns of the new workplace will require ongoing analysis and adjustment. Come listen to public sector clients (ESDC, House of Commons) speak to how data and technology is guiding the safe and careful return to work. The discussion will include various use cases to address immediate term needs but also how these solutions will service whatever the steady state is in the future.

Asset Management: A better Plan B!

September 1 from 12:00 - 1:00 pm EST

The current pandemic impacts people managing assets and challenges the efficiency of an organization's Plan B response. But what constitutes a good Plan A? How can an organization integrate an asset management journey aimed at optimizing its value by reducing cost, improving performance and reducing risks? This session will include the perspective of a government organization that has embarked on such a journey.

The pandemic outbreak provides an opportunity to document initiatives and develop programs that can strengthen an organization's Plan B, or resilience, by controlling risks, improving operational continuity and enabling teams to work harmoniously. This will also be an opportunity for the real property community to hear about current trends and opportunities observed in the public sector.
