Gone are the days when the workplace was a static environment, where employees arrived at the same spot each day to perform the same routine tasks.

Today’s workspace solutions need to be varied enough to accommodate a vast set of organizational and individual needs, while also being able to adapt to new requirements rapidly. In addition, they must enable a collaborative work experience while at the same time being mindful of employees’ need to disconnect and de-stress.

So, how does a company know which type of workspace solution is right for its employees? Design firms and/or workplace strategists approach the problem by identifying the unique DNA of the company and the specialized groups within it and tailoring the environment to meet everyone’s specific needs. This approach allows organizations to create curated experiences that provide employees with a la carte workplace options including services, location, and support. In this session, you’ll get specific insights about how to develop a plan and foster an environment that best meets the varied needs of your organization’s workforce.


* Understand the specific design concepts and workplace options that can be implemented under the broad heading of “open office.”
* Learn how to determine which concepts and options will work best for specific subsets of your employees.
