About the Workplace Evolutionaries (WE)
WE is a vibrant global workplace community of practice within the International Facility Management Association (IFMA) focused on increasing workplace innovation and consciousness. When “Work on the Move” was published by the IFMA Foundation in 2011, it generated high levels of interest for many focused on understanding workplace strategy. This award-winning book became a catalyst for the first IFMA Foundation Workplace Strategy Research Summit that was held at Cornell University in 2012. The book, the summit and the passion seen from IFMA members for this topic inspired IFMA to co-create WE as a new workplace community. International Facility Management Association, 800 Gessner Rd.
