Case study: The future of the workplace
The future of work is changing, and tasks can be completed anywhere. What brings employees back to the office?
Case study summary
In the wake of a worldwide health pandemic, many organizations are rethinking their workplace needs. How will this crisis create new workplace typologies and configurations? Furthermore, how can LEO A DALY use new typologies to advise clients through this crisis and set the stage for the office to become the intersection of connection, culture and critical thinking to create innovation?
In this case study, we reimagine the program for office space, focused less on desks and seats, and more on the enhanced experience of connection, culture and innovation, which will be a critical turning point for the workforce.
