Can your landlord help your business attract talents, reduce environmental footprint, and foster team collaboration? Royal Bank of Canada aims to achieve all that with its new Canadian headquarters in Toronto being built by Oxford Properties. I take a look at the special features custom designed for sustainability, employee engagement, and business strategies.

Speaker Chris Jarvis, Co-Founder and Senior Consultant at RealizedWorth, shared the value in allowing employees to grow as people by sharing their unique passions and skills.
