503: City of Ottawa & WORKshift

October 02, 2014

10:00am – 11:00am

How we communicate and share information is changing and so is the way we work. The City of Ottawa is making a significant investment in transportation infrastructure through a program called Ottawa on the Move, which includes roads, sidewalks, bridges and cycling pathways. The program’s objective is to assist major employers to increase productivity by encouraging flexible work and to collectively alter commutes to lower demand on the transportation network, making it easier to get around the city. This session will describe the city’s stakeholder engagement program supporting this initiative. It will also explore the city’s efforts to implement WORKshiftTM, an initiative focused on changing the city’s culture to embrace a flexible work environment through technology.
