Work&Place: Our new Journal
Work&Place, OJL’s new journal, is now out! The first issue is available online free of charge at this link:
Paul Carder, the editor and Managing Director of Occupiers Journal, describes Work&Place this way:
“Work&Place, published quarterly by Occupiers Journal, is different. For a start it’s international. The team behind it is based on three different continents with a wider team covering two more.
“The journal is promoting a dialogue between its contributors and readers. Every article includes extensive links to further information and readers are encouraged to join a special online discussion for each issue:
“Our journal will be relevant to the creators and managers of ‘places’ (corporate real estate, construction, facilities management and workplace development).
“It will be equally relevant to managers of ‘work’ (business leaders, and functional specialists who have a key influence on corporate ‘places’ – human resources and information technology and others such as branding/marketing).”
The first issue was published in August, 2012, to rave reviews. Here’s what some important thought leaders are already saying:
Diane Coles Levine, Director of Workplace Services, SCAN Health Plan; and IFMA Foundation Trustee:
“I read Work&Place cover-to-cover on the plane ride home [from the IFMA Foundation Workplace Summit]. Wow! This is the best periodical I have read in my field! Congratulations on an outstanding job.
Every article has some information that I can directly apply to my job. This never happens when I read trade journals I can’t wait to share it with the FM team at SCAN Health Plan. I just wanted to thank you for providing us FMs with this valuable information.
It’s fantastic! It’s stimulating! it’s easy to read and jam-packed with critical information I can apply. Can’t wait for the next issue. “
Michael Schley, CEO, FM:Systems; and Chair, IFMA Foundation Knowledge Management Committee:
“I was very impressed with your inaugural journal. It is very rewarding to see a publication that is both interesting and serious. I hope that you have success with the venture. It is making an important contribution to the conversation.”
Debra Dailey, Vice President, Human Capital Solutions & Outcomes, Sodexo:
“Paul, It was wonderful seeing you [at the Workplace Strategy Summit] and seeing the output from the Journal…congrats again! It was a great idea to get it printed and distributed at the conference. On the way home I sat next to someone who was reading it, underlining comments, and excited to post feedback.”
