The workplace matters more than ever, but yesterday’s office is not serving the workers of today. Collaborative spaces to connect with coworkers are scarce, as are places to focus without disruption. And although leaders feel that creativity is an essential skill that can support company growth and profitability, only 39% consider their company to be creative. Meanwhile, 69% of employees feel they are not living up to their creative potential, and 75% report that their workspaces aren’t sparking creativity.
Developed from research insights and a core set of design principles, Steelcase and Microsoft have collaborated to create an ecosystem of interrelated places and devices to support the different stages and activities of creative work. When designed with a holistic vision that considers and accommodates the ever-changing needs of people, technology, and space, creative spaces can enhance engagement and inspire workers to achieve more.
This course outlines the drivers and disrupters of the shifting needs and demands of workers, and provides an overview of the creative process. It also identifies three design principles, key spatial attributes and five space typologies that can support creativity in the workplace.
