Kate Lister is President at Global Workplace Analytics where she is passionate about helping employers develop, deploy, and measure the results of remote and hybrid workplace strategies. Mike Petrusky invited Kate to join him on the show just days after returning from Denver, CO where they both took part in “The Big Debate: Which way should the pendulum swing?” with the Workplace Evolutionaries community. They agreed to take a more thoughtful, nuanced approach when discussing the impact of remote work and acknowledged that the problem facing companies is NOT a binary one and there is no onesizefitsall solution. Mike and Kate took a deeper dive into the challenges brought up in the debate, including the difficulty in measuring the impact of remote work on productivity, innovation, culture, and engagement. Kate believes that the evolution of work is just beginning and she challenges workplace leaders to remain curious, open to new ideas, and willing to experiment. Mike and Kate both emphasized the importance of adaptability and continuous learning, especially for facility management professionals, as they navigate the future of work and seek to be a Workplace Innovator in their organizations!
