Championing Growth and Well-Being for a Transformed Public Sector

The Civil Service is on a journey to re-shape facilities management and working practices across the entire public sector. If successful, we can create a workforce which is not only representative of the entire UK and their needs, but also has complete flexibility over how, when and where they work.

In order to meet this challenge the Smart Estates & Workforce Summit, taking place on 10th November 2020, invites professionals to explore, identify & overcome the barriers to successful workplace transformation.
