TORONTO (March 13, 2014) – Terms like “cofficers” and “holacracy” may soon be part of everyday workplace vernacular, and CANADA AM offers viewers a glimpse of an emerging brave new world where traditional workplace rules are being replaced to suit the tech-savvy, increasingly mobile worker. Starting this Monday, March 17, CANADA AM launches “The Changing Workplace”, a week-long series that explores emerging trends and cool ideas that are quickly gaining steam in the Canadian workplace.

 

CANADA AM’s The Changing Workplacehighlights include:
