A workplace strategy that incorporates new learning about the way we work and where we can work will likely result in changes to the status quo
Effectively defining those changes and implementing that new strategy requires an understanding of the ripple effects and impacts of change across the organization, whether it’s technology standards, new HR and management practices, or simply where teams are located. Our process addresses charting the course for a new workplace holistically, setting up the foundation for both design excellence and effective change management.
The nature of work has changed dramatically, and in many instances, the workplace has not kept pace. Offices may be updated but the model still follows outdated principles. What is evolving is not a single destination for work, but an ecosystem of spaces and places. Today’s employee operates in a variety of work modes, and technology enables that work to happen in any number of places. Creating a High-Performance Workplace means identifying those various modes and understanding workflows and organizational relationships to provide the best employee experience and support their work in ways that other options cannot.
Change is constant and occurring at an accelerated pace. Competition, innovation, and the pressures on margins require clear priorities and strategies for the pulling and pushing of levers to drive positive results. Globally and across all sectors, business has demonstrated the ability to respond rapidly to profound disruption. What we’ve learned in the process provides the foundation for a re-envisioning of the workplace, how we define it, and its purpose.
Change brings with it opportunities. Armed with a clear understanding of your goals and priorities, Threshold ask’s “what if?” Doing so begins an exploration of new possibilities as we challenge the status quo to ensure that the workspace is directly aligned to your evolving business goals and tightly integrated with your unique Workplace Ecosystem. Within this process, we seek to surface inefficiencies, misalignments and design solutions that maximize the investment in your workspace.
