Workplace: A Catalyst for Transformation, Innovation and Future Success
Organizations move with a speed and agility that was unimaginable even a decade ago. It took appliance manufacturers 50 years before the washing machine reached 50-percent market share. Today, Apple can reach 90 percent of its market in mere hours. Technology has transformed business into a race to stay relevant.
The workplace is transforming, too—not only its physical spaces, but the very idea of what a workplace represents. For decades, organizations have viewed the workplace as an operational
cost of doing business, analyzed through the lens of dollars per square foot or other metrics.
At the 2017 Client Advisory Board, participants explored a much bolder vision of the workplace: redefining it not as a cost center but as a profit center, a tool that fosters and supports the organization’s goals and propels it forward. Transforming the role of the workplace can be a profound catalyst for organizational change, innovation and future success.
