Join us for our first evening program meeting on Thursday, March 13th!
Is your Workspace Ready?
In this interactive presentation, attendees will receive an overview of the key trends and workplace issues, as well as some ideas on how to think about, and design for, the kind of workplace that organizations need to thrive in this interconnected world we’ll live in. We refer to it as an “interconnected workplace” and we’ll show you a concept and frame work that we have developed in order to support the ideas we believe are relevant and significant.
Through a quick user exercise on how we currently work in our own space, our presenter will make us think the percentage of the time we spend on four modes of work: focus, social, learning & collaboration. We will also have the opportunity to see Steelcase’s Showroom as a direct relation to the topics covered.
Wine & Cheese will be served, courtesy of Steelcase.
