11:00 AM Design for the Future: Learning, Flexibility, and Optimism in the Workplace

It can be hard to bring optimism to work every day. Flexibility is easier said than done. People often feel too burdened by busyness to find new ways to approach work. Great design and passion for learning removes those barriers. The investments you make in your office design today will spark growth in the future. Hang onto your seats--this is going to be fun!
• Workplace design trends come and go, but companies need offices that can scale and grow as they do. Is your office designed for growth?
• Breaking the cycle of traditional use of space is essential to employee satisfaction. How do you make every corner of your office count?
• You need learning spaces. Employees who learn every day collaborate, create and innovate.
• It’s all work and all life, there is no 50-50 balance. How can we create space that allows our teams to start everyday with optimism?
