Program Discussion: Where’s My Desk? Activity Based Working in a New Age
Join Elizabeth Lowrey, Principal and Director of Interior Architecture at Elkus Manfredi Architects for a lively discussion and lightning-quick workshop on the co-creation process of engaging clients to plan for and execute their activity based workspace. Activity based working (ABW) provides choices of how, when and where people work within the office and results in improvements in workplace productivity, happiness and real estate metrics.
In re-imagining workplaces for leading-edge companies like Boston Consulting Group (BCG), The Publicis Groupe and Citizens Bank, Elizabeth and her team have found that co-creation leads to successful design solutions that align with how people really want to use their space. Employees who participate in the design of their own workspaces show greater engagement and satisfaction with their surroundings.
We hope you will join us for this exciting session. You can learn more about the co-creation process, by reading Elizabeth’s latest article in CoreNet's Leader magazine.
