Mobile Workforce Survey 2012

We delighted to announce that we have launched a new Mobile Workforce Survey to explore in depth how and where people are getting their work done in 2012. This survey is a collaborative effort between The Future of Work…unlimited and Novacrea, a talent management consulting firm based in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The survey takes just 10 minutes to complete. Click on this link and do it right now:


We’d love your participation. And we’ll be happy to send a free Executive Summary of the survey results to everyone who completes the survey.

IFMA Research Summit

If you go to one more conference in 2012, make it this one. The IFMA Foundation is sponsoring a two-day “Workplace Strategy Summit 2012: Research in Action” conference at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, on September 7 and 8.

Attendance will be limited to 150 practitioners and thought leaders from around the world. The goal of the Summit is to define the workplace/facilities research agenda for the next five years. You will kick yourself for all five of those years if you miss this event.

The Summit keynote address will be delivered by Frank Duffy, founder and director of the architectural firm DEGW. Other notable presenters include Cornell University Professor Frank Becker, researcher Susan Stucky of IBM, Professor Alexi Marmot of London Business College, Philip Ross of Unwired Ventures (and the Worktech conferences), and Noborro Konno of KIRO (Knowledge Innovation and Research Office) in Japan.

The Summit proceedings will be documented in a book to be published by the IFMA Foundation. You can read more about the Summit, view the agenda, and register to attend at:


I’ll be there; I hope you will be too.
