Demystifying Change Management at HLW's Round Table

Author: Mat Triebner, Senior Design Strategist

In an effort to foster a healthy discussion on relevant workplace themes, HLW established the Round Table Series. These events are an opportunity to bring together our clients and industry experts for informal, intimate conversations on trends in the workplace.

Last week marked the inaugural Round Table for 2015. Hosted by Steelcase at the company’s WorkLife Center in Manhattan, the evening event brought our clients, HLW team members, and new faces to the table for a lively chat on workplace change. The discussion took on the challenges and drivers of workplace change, including what tactics can help smooth the transition to a new workplace environment.

To get you started off on the right foot we would like to give a sneak peak at some guides for healthy change.
