Chris Alcock, Auckland Council

SYNOPSIS:

In 2012, Auckland Council embarked on a journey to create a Workplace Strategy for their future workplaces which coincided with the decision to consolidate their CBD offices into owned space and to purchase the former ASB Centre in Albert Street. Hear about the people and property drivers for this project, how they engaged their employees in a ground up approach to the formation of the Workplace Strategy, and the ways in which workplace change has been supported and encouraged across council.
