Today’s workplace has to attract new workers and millennials and provide the choices to make employees both happy and productive, but a successful office environment is far more than just new furniture designs, big windows and bright colors. The best designers and top workplace consultants use data to create a look and to shape an experience that engages workers and sets the stage for collaboration and innovation. This data comes from multiple sources, has to be carefully analyzed and interpreted, and is the key to transforming walls, desks and rooms into the place people want to work and the source of an organization’s success.
Listen in as top workplace consultant Janet Pogue and analytics architect Jeremy Deyo discuss the different kinds of data that inform workplace design, as they share examples of how data makes a difference in transforming the traditional office environment, and how data are used as feedback to tweak and course-correct renovations and implementations. Join the discussion as they answer questions about how these data are combined to solve specific problems and promote the desired culture and outcomes.
- Types of data: passive, anecdotal, interactive, observational, and digital
- Examples of use within workplace design and transformation
