Businesses today must find innovative ways to sustain themselves. It’s not easy: 9 out of 10 businesses fail in the first 3 years; the Gallup Organization has shown that 70% of the workforce is disengaged; the tenure of companies on the S&P 500 List is rapidly decreasing and CEO’s today have an average lifespan of only 4 years. We are seeing an increasing amount of change and many of businesses are becoming commoditized.
How do organizations increase engagement and provide on going value to their customers? The newly published Change Your Space, Change Your Culture by Rex Miller takes a deep dive into how organizations can use their space to adapt through understanding how space and people interact. Office space is one of the best tools that leadership can use to encourage people to connect, interact, communicate and collaborate in order to iterate, refine and leverage new ideas.
We are in period of massive change, where the old economy, culture and traditions inhibit the way that we need to think about space and exchange information. Our workspaces are only just beginning to adapt. Change is necessary to just to catch up. But for many, resistance to change holds us back when today, the greatest risk is doing nothing.
Change Your Space, Change Your Culture looks at innovative companies where the workplace sets the context for changing the culture of the organization. It provides a rare glimpse into how organizations can successfully navigate through the challenges of business and resist becoming a commodity.
Your office space is the best tool that your organization can use to improve the engagement of your people and improve performance.
