Powering the Workplace

Agility in the workplace is key to its success.

Being ready to change direction at a moment’s notice is essential to success in facilities management. FM leaders must continually be planning, even when there is no set plan.

In our next webinar we’ll hear how a company did just that. Regeneron Pharmaceuticals is sharing their ongoing journey from 60 employees, to over 9,000. Talk about being agile. Michelle and Daniel will cover how they handled this rapid growth and used flexibility to their advantage when creating spaces to support their company’s growth and overall mission.

Broadcasting LIVE from Irvington, NY, join host Mike Petrusky as he interviews Michelle Fritsche with Regeneron and Daniel Castner of BAM Architecture Studio on March 13th at 5:30 PM EST.

During This Live Webinar You’ll Learn:

  • How to always be prepared for the unexpected
  • Ways to adapt to changes in your workforce’s needs
  • Why culture is critical during times of workplace change
  • Techniques to incorporate flexibility into your overall strategy

Mike Petrusky is the host of “The Facility Management Innovator Podcast“, a weekly show that inspires industry professionals to build a culture of collaboration in the FM community. Mike has served in a variety of leadership roles in the FM world, and his marketing expertise, combined with experience engaging with facility practitioners, uniquely positions Mike to help organizations deliver workplace innovation in the facility management community.
