Our mission is to improve the quality of workforce experience & value of human capital through analytics that guide workspace design and financial metrics that support the case for change.

 

is based on 20+ years of research, not smoke and mirrors.

 
In this book, we explore the idea that organizations are like living, “organic” beings, and their work and spaces should follow a more flexible planning model. The book contains over 20 research projects that connect the design of space to health and performance metrics.
Creating alignment between the office environment, the business objectives & mission of the organization can be challenging. This book provides a framework to develop strategies and tactics to leverage the work environment as a tool to enhance organizational effectiveness.
