Increasingly, organizations are viewing the workplace as a tool to achieve business objectives. Knoll’s shared spaces guide breaks down five different areas within a workspace that can meet employees’ needs for different types of work throughout the day. These spaces also help companies optimize real estate, reduce silos, shape organization culture and retain talent.
With a little strategic planning, these areas can be logically placed throughout a workspace to the benefit of employees, by giving them the opportunity to find the space they need. Knoll has identified these five areas as refuge, enclave, team meeting, community and assembly spaces.
