This presentation will identify and discuss many of the social, demographic and technological trends that are, in turn, driving workplace trends; and the implications all this has for workplace design. We’ll talk about how work is changing and how what workers want is changing; and how designers and managers of work environments can help clients to determine what aspects are most relevant and applicable to them (instead of falling prey to every fad that comes along).
1. Discover macro trends such as social, work, workforce and technology and how they relate to a space.
2. Learn about the balance between collaboration and focus work, mobility, and globalization and how that affects the design and use of space.
3. Understand best practices in working with furniture and how that relates to the business drivers.
4. Plan workplace solutions based on the best-practices discussed.
