Harder Working Spaces 

People are working harder than ever. So should their space. 

The workplace has never had to work so hard. On the cover (see the magazine to download on the right), our mind map, a brainstorming technique used by our colleagues at IDEO to support design thinking, illustrates how the workplace has to maximise use of real estate, attract and engage workers, communicate company brand and culture, and foster collaboration and innovation. To help make this idea a reality, we offer insights from designers, architects, and Steelcase researchers on how to plan these harder working spaces, and show companies that have pulled it off.
