“I have been attending the NY WORKTECH conferences regularly for four years and I find them to be an excellent array of presentations and discussions about design, technology, real estate, futurism and sociology relating to the workplace. The presenters are always well prepared and thought provoking and the audience is rich with expertise and insights. I always make new and valuable contacts at WORKTECH and come away feeling enthused and excited about developing and implementing new ways to improve the work environment. I highly recommend this conference to everyone interested in the evolution of how we work.”

WORKshift Canada

In 2009, Calgary Economic Development launched WORKshift to help businesses in Calgary compete. Led by Robyn Bews, WORKshift began with a passion for finding a better way to work. It wasn’t long before it became clear that “workshifting” (our name for flexible work) wasn’t just a good idea, but one critical to workplaces of the future. Founded to help businesses in Calgary compete, our original Canadian data, innovative products, enthusiastic consultation services, and deep partner network have made WORKshift the authoritative voice on workshifting in Canada. Our goals are simple: reduce risk and minimize strain for employers ready to optimize their workplace for the future. In the years since WORKshift was founded, the needs of employers in relation to flexible work practices have progressed from understanding “why to” to figuring out the “how to”. (Clearly you’ve been listening.)

Today, WORKshift supports companies dealing with how to implement flexible work practices through two key initiatives: The WORKshift Certification Standard: the benchmark to which all flexible work programs can be compared and The WORKshift Playbook: the definitive “how-to” guide
