Tomorrow's Workplace

Tomorrow’s Workplace (TW) is a five-year council-approved initiative that will build the foundation for a sustainable, collaborative and flexible way of working through technology, training and space, while meeting business needs. The initiative aims to attract and retain employees, create cost effective workspace and provide even better service to citizens.
Since its inception in 2012, TW has worked with industry experts and participated in pilot projects at The City to determine what will work best. Over the next 3 years, TW will be engaging City leaders and employees and working on many Corporate-wide initiatives that will enable employees to work more flexibly and productively.

TW is an example of Transforming Government because space, technology and people will combine in innovative ways to allow The City’s workforce to even better serve the citizens of Calgary.

What is Transforming Government?

Government exists to serve citizens. Every day, citizens are touched by The City of Calgary and the services it offers. Transforming Government is a culture of constant improvement at The City of Calgary — improvement that makes life better for all citizens.

In 2011, Mayor Naheed Nenshi and City Council unanimously agreed to embrace and reinforce this approach to constant improvement — Transforming Government is a way to do just that. So, when you see the Transforming Government stamp on something, you know it is part of something that makes Calgary even better.

A public work, an initiative, project, program or plan marked with Transforming Government reflects one or more of the following principles:

Transparency provides a clear view of exactly what’s going on “behind the scenes”, so citizens can understand why a project or service exists.

Accountability is the clear demonstration of how and why The City has done something, and that The City and Council accept responsibility for the decision, program or plan.

Civic Engagement is a commitment to bring together citizens, organizations, and City employees in the planning and development of our great city.

Innovation describes new ideas, services, or approaches that make living and working in Calgary even better.

Citizen Orientation ensures that a program, project or service is designed with customers or citizens in mind.

Sustainability describes long-term thinking that makes for a healthy community, environment, and economy, now and in the future.
