Internet search engine Google will headline the third general session at this year's CoreNet Global European Summit in Berlin (21-23 September 2008) which takes the theme "The Productivity Puzzle: Redefining the Work Environment".
Jason Harper, Head of FM, Google Germany and Andrew Laing, Managing Director, DEGW will speak at the session, entitled "The Total Workplace at Google", which will look at how the world's largest search engine in partnership with the global design consultancy has developed their ultimate workplace environment in Munich.
The general session, which is anticipated to be a highlight of the 2008 Summit program, will describe how Google created a workplace that was flexible enough to accommodate their rapid growth, host two completely different business units, incorporate Google's corporate sustainability strategies, and provide a tool for attracting and retaining the best talent, yet still retains the feeling and influence of Munich.
Illustrating their success in innovative workplace thinking, guidelines on Google's productive, flexible, collaborative, engaging & sustainable ideals are now also being rolled out to their sites all over the world.
CoreNet Global's seventh annual European Summit program will also feature contributions from science astronaut and research specialist Ulrich Walter, and bestselling author and business strategist Rowan Gibson, in a packed program examining how human productivity can be increased by work environment factors.
The CoreNet Global Summit Berlin takes place 21-23 September at the Intercontinental Hotel. Further information and registration details can be found here
