This shifting landscape of work leaves many people and organizations out of sync, with unmet needs.
Many existing methods of equipping and managing the workplace fail to serve the enterprise, as they fail to empower or motivate people. Individual and group spaces aren’t optimized for modern work styles. Many offices are, literally and figuratively, from another era.
Herman Miller’s Living Office—a naturally human integration of people, ideas, tools, furnishings and spaces, to create a more desirable workplace. Living Office helps people and organizations uniquely express and enable their shared character, activities, and purpose, promoting employee engagement, creativity, productivity, and wellbeing, and ultimately greater prosperity for all.
By arranging open meeting spaces next to work and lounge areas, client’s can utilize their existing stock to create areas that mimic the Workshop/Haven areas of Living Office. This opens the lines of communication and encourages impromptu meetings. Collaboration is a key factor to determine if a current space meets any of these requirements.
The legacy office often includes offices on the outer area of the building, and internal conference rooms, workstations, and facilities. The Living Office theory takes the offices down to a minimum, encouraging workstation and soft seat areas that encourage comfort while learning, chatting, and building ideas with coworkers. Creating a happier and stronger bond at the office is proven to increase productivity and the well being of the people working in the space. Living Office is not just a product line of technology-driven integration. In fact, Living Office can be applied to existing furniture, providing the client has space, time, and funds to rearrange their legacy plan.
