    With the rising costs of Real Estate, companies are looking to their facility managers to find ways in reducing their overall footprint.  One trend in this direction is to implement a work from home program for workers who don't require daily face to face collaboration.  Our panelists will review the pros and cons of these programs and how they impact, not only the bottom line, but worker morale, collaboration, productivity, liability, and more.  Join us for this morning program in Boston's Back Bay.

    Kate Thibeault, MCR, MBA, CFM, ABCP
