WHAT’S THE PRESCRIPTION FOR A STRATEGIC WORKPLACE?
At Red Thread, we think it’s the “Power of Place”. Today, employees want spaces they choose to come to because it helps them be more productive, collaborative, engaged – in a nutshell, do their best work.
CREATING A WORKPLACE AS AN ECOSYSTEM
Understanding that physical space can be a key strategic asset, is the first step. The next step is to think about your workplace as an ecosystem, one that supports the physical, cognitive and emotional needs of people. When you approach space in this interconnected way, you can start to address many of the questions above. Giving people choice and control over where and how they work can help build employee engagement, wellbeing and productivity as well as serve to optimize space and address generational differences.
Ideally, an ecosystem should offer a range, or palette, of places—destinations that balance spaces for group work with individual spaces for focus and reflection. They also should provide access to the tools and technology that people can only find at work. When designed to work in conjunction with one another, these interrelated spaces will help prepare your organization, and your people, for tomorrow’s challenges!
