Kyra Cavanaugh, President of Life Meets Work, will present a breakout session with coleagues Gary Miciunas from NELSON and Larry Barkley of the Barkley Advisory Group titled, “Enabling Workplace Flexibility through Cross-Functional Collaboration.”
As the quest for talent continues to be a top concern among CEOs, attracting and retaining the best people will increasingly require a workplace culture of flexibility. This session presents a maturity model for collaboration among Human Resources, Information Technology and Corporate Real Estate that ensures the successful achievement of workplace flexibility. After a brief introduction of the model, speakers will engage the audience in three roundtable discussions on the challenges of cross-functional integration.
Participants will be able to identify gaps in work process, roles, responsibilities and rewards among functional silos in CRE, HR and IT. In understanding what is necessary to close these gaps, participants will be able to influence organizational improvement of cross-functional processes that ensure the successful delivery of workplace flexibility. Participants will also be able to assess how independent measures of success fall short and how a set of shared metrics among CRE, HR and IT can move cross-functional teams toward effective collaborative partnerships in co-developing workplace flexibility.
