Lunch & Learns


Productivity in the Workplace

This session includes a light lunch and a presentation from one of the federal government's leaders in shaping the federal workplace of the future, Sonia Powell, Director General, Workplace Solutions, Public Services and Procurement Canada.

Sonia Powell 16Sonia will lead a discussion on productivity - its meaning - and on the workplace as one of the enabling tools to increase it. She will speak to how the a new vision for the workplace, called GCworkplace, and the design solutions it proposes ultimately support Public Services and Procurement Canada’s client organisations’ productivity levels and how these will be measured moving forward.

The issue of workplace performance and workforce productivity are important dimensions for the entire federal real property community, one that guides our strategies and decisions. The Q & A and networking portions of the session will provide opportunity for you to ask questions or share experiences in dealing with the concept of productivity in the workplace and the challenges we sometimes face in measuring it.

In her role as an RPIC Board member, Sonia will also provide an overview of RPIC's plans and programs and will seek your ideas and suggestions for other topics or sessions you would like to see offered in the region. RPIC's mission is to foster and enable professional development, knowledge exchange and lifelong learning across the federal government real property community.
