WEBINAR:
FINANCIAL SERVICES
DESIGN STRATEGIES FOR A POST-COVID WORLD

While financial workers have emerged from the pandemic with new ways of working, Gensler’s latest Design Forecast underscores the importance of fostering reconnection in a post-COVID world. As many financial services firms have managed to adapt, and even thrive while working and trading from home during the pandemic, they’re now embracing remote and hybrid work to create more meaningful workplace experiences.

In this webinar, Gensler’s Financial Services Global Practice Area Leaders Chris Coldoff and Marisol Champoonote DeRosa, with Positioning Manager Alyson Stawicki and Financial Services Resilience Leader David Briefel, discuss how the design of new work environments should balance technology with irreplaceable human connection, and how workplace mobility will redefine the office as a destination to maximize performance.

A panel discussion follows, led by Gensler Paris Managing Director Philippe Paré, Gensler Munich Managing Director Phil Tidd, Strategy Director Lauren Adams, and Global Technology Leader Brian Stromquist.
