Envision - Imagine your ideal work environment with workplace strategy and consulting.
Kaleidoscope Experience SM Workshop
No one can predict the future, yet facilities pros are expected to make decisions today that will support employees tomorrow. A Kaleidoscope Experience workshop helps you identify emerging trends so you can better prepare your workplace. It springs from the same source as Herman Miller's products - extensive research into how work will change.
Business Realities Workshop
Designed primarily for your top real estate and facilities people, a Business Realities workshop provides a framework for exploring workplace trends and their implications. Your decision makers will come away with fresh insight into how issues revolving around people, process, and place affect your organization.
Exploring the "world of work" landscape from new points of view is crucial to making smart decisions about how your workplace can best contribute to the success of your organization. Herman Miller's Topography workshop takes a diagnostic approach toward helping you create a great place to work. We'll help you explore the major influences on your workplace and identify their impact on the decisions you need to make regarding workplace design and furnishings.
Future Pull Workshop
Too often, the reality of what is makes it impossible to see the potential of what could be. That's the premise behind Future Pull, a proven group brainstorming technique. Herman Miller has integrated the Future Pull technique into a workshop aimed at helping your organization envision its ideal office environment and determine how best to make it happen.
A strong corporate culture can attract top employees, encourage them to take initiative, reinforce your brand identity, and enhance financial performance. This workshop will help you identify the beliefs, values, and behaviors that shape your culture. You'll also learn how to leverage your culture to improve performance.
Branding Assessment and Workshop
Your workplace portrays an image. Is it the one you want? We'll help you articulate your brand image and identify ways to communicate it through your space with these two complementary services. The branding assessment involves an evaluation by Herman Miller workplace experts followed by engagement with your key stakeholders, while our workshop leverages broader involvement by your key personnel.
Create - Transform your vision into reality with workplace planning and delivery.
Workplace Evaluation Programs
Herman Miller conducts workplace evaluation studies designed to assess the quality of workplace features and the effects of office design on employee behavior, health, and performance. These programs can range from simple short-term assessments to substantial research projects. Our web-based survey, distributed via an e-mail link, is especially appropriate for organizations that are planning or undergoing workplace change.
Workplace Change Communication
When you change your work environment, employees are bound to have questions. Answer them with a communication program that spells out what's going to happen, when, and why. We'll help you develop the case for change, implement a detailed communication plan to get buy-in from your employees, and make a smooth transition to your new work environment.
Since our introduction of the world's first ergonomically designed office chair in 1976, Herman Miller has been a leader in research aimed at helping office workers interact efficiently and safely with the tools of work.
