    Soaring real estate costs, a hot labor market, and the every progressing workplace environment makes the topic of unassigned/active seating a hot one! Join as we explore the evolution of the dedicated desk hearing from Randy Whinnery, Vice President, Design at Fidelity Investments; Lisa Killaby, Principal and Director of Workplace Strategy at Perkins + Will; Karen Gill, Vice President User Experience Workplace Strategist at Fidelity Investments; and Tracy Neff, Director of US Workplace Design and Construction for PWC as they share their varied experiences in transitioning offices, business units, people, and attitudes to embrace the model of activity based work. This event will be hosted at Perkins + Will’s beautiful downtown office, where they just made the shift to an unassigned seating model – so you will not only be able to hear from experts who have and are actively navigating this topic but you’ll be able to see it firsthand.
