How Francisco is building a better working world

“I am focused on the development of strategies and initiatives that enable an organization's corporate services, real estate, workplace and facilities assets to be considered value-added components of business process, as opposed to simply cost structures. As a workplace transformation advocate, I’m building a better working world by helping to reimagine these experiences for a broad range of stakeholders.”
