Conference rooms and huddle spaces may never be used the same again. Most companies are looking at their collaboration spaces through a new lens thanks to the pandemic. Space planners are now prioritizing the ability to scale and have flexibility within the current office space. By creating this flexibility, we can prepare for different types of work environments for years to come.

Join the August Power Hour to learn how to:

  • Review the role of a space planner and understand when to utilize one. 
  • Outline ways to scale spaces to ensure ultimate flexibility. 
  • Discuss ways to maximize space to best serve all types of employees.
