Design with Impact
Everyone talks about how work is changing. Let’s talk about what to do about it. We have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to redefine the workplace. Our approach addresses the human needs of employees to improve their wellbeing, fosters a sense of community and connection, and helps organizations navigate, prepare, and design for change.
It’s not just about bringing people together. It’s about what happens next.
Beyond one size fits all

More than a destination
Employees recognize the benefits of being together. To maximize those benefits—for employees and their organization—their workplace needs to provide spaces optimized for what they want to do there. This ranges from spaces to collaborate, meet, socialize, and receive mentorship, to quiet spots for heads-down focus.

Three opportunities for impact emerged from our ongoing research and discussions with clients about their most pressing needs: wellbeing, connection, and change. Let’s work together to understand these opportunities within your organization and uncover the purpose of your place.
