Prescription for a strategic workplace

WHAT’S THE PRESCRIPTION FOR STRATEGIC WORKSPACES?

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, and engaged—in a nutshell, to do their best work.

Understanding today’s key workplace trends is the first step, along with understanding that physical space can be a key strategic asset. Thinking about your workplace as an ecosystem, one that supports the physical, cognitive and emotional needs of people is the next step. 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, a thoughtful 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 support your organization, and your people, for tomorrow’s challenges!
