Discover how intentionally designed work environments ignite a company-wide culture of innovation and collaboration with Herman Miller’s Living Office specialist Jen Teckenburg.
Though we live in the most creative period of human existence—demonstrated by everything from our perpetually advancing technology to our passionate social movements—many workplace facilities continue to reflect an outdated mode of thought. While cubicles were once an effective solution to the untamed chaos of the workplace, they encourage a kind of formulaic, inside-the-box thinking that today’s organizations have simply outgrown. Successful companies require settings that encourage risk-taking, creativity, and collaboration.
Consciously designing a company’s facilities, structure, and culture can redefine the workplace as an engaging environment that fuels innovation. The Living Office is an approach to office design that fosters the creative and intellectual growth of individual members. By allowing the people within the office to thrive, the entire workplace is revitalized. Join Living Office specialist Jen Teckenburg the morning of July 21st to discover how deliberate design can bolster productivity, increase satisfaction, raise revenue, and more.
“By considering both activities and settings in the context of an organization’s goals, as well as the attributes that make the company and its people unique, a design team can implement a diverse mix of settings that reflects the organization’s unique culture while also supporting the work people are doing.” —Abdallah Fadel, Director of New Ventures and Technology Solutions, Herman Miller
