Over the last decade the stereotypical image of the corporate work environment has distinctly evolved. Office spaces created for standardization, efficiency, and compliance have waned in favor of personal, unique, and intimate workplaces. Over this time, organizations have increasingly realized the importance of providing spaces that are conducive to their employee’s well-being, and individuality. At the same time the lines defining the workplace have begun to blur as more of our work is increasingly handled outside of the office and more of our private lives are experienced within it. As our perceptions of the workplace have changed, so too has our vision of what an ideal workplace should look, feel, and act like.
Looking and feeling, however, are only one part of the equation in creating a successful workplace. The true key is to seek beyond look and feel to understand behavior and to answer deeper questions. Why does this space exist? What greater purpose does it serve? Inspiring workspaces find the balance between what looks good, what feels good, and what works good. These are places which are experienced as much as they are lived within, and they exist not only to provide a place to perform tasks and increase worker productivity, but to motivate and instill a sense of connection and passion. Fostering these types of experiences begins with understanding that employees individually and collectively have diverse needs. Consideration must be paid to how each member of a team works best. While some workers thrive in spaces which allow them to work alone, others may desire places which foster collaboration. While some see the office as a place for high energy connections, others see it as a place for respite and rejuvenation.
