3 Future Companies
We illustrate our vision for the future of the workplace through three future companies: Commmunicate Blue, Green Movement, and Innovation Orange. Each represents an emerging company model of the future: based on company goals, workforce, and size. These hypothetical companies illustrate future challenges businesses can expect in designing a workplace tailored to their needs, and how they might meet these challenges with clever workplace design, strategy, and products.
Leading, established, and focused on keeping their best people healthy and productive.
Green Movement ‘walks the talk’, building a business that delivers a higher quality of life in addition to profits.
Quick, flexible, and digital, Innovation Orange exists as much in the cloud as it does on the ground.
Universal Ways of Working
The kind of work we do will certainly change, however the way we do it will not. We have identified five fundamental ways of working that must be supported in workplace design.
Trends in sustainability, technology, and demography will come into play, redefining the workplace and its role in supporting work.
