In an interconnected and interdependent world, the workplace has to work smarter, and harder, than ever before. Optimizing real estate is a key strategic issue. It has to enhance collaboration, attract and engage employees, build brand and encourage the wellbeing of the people who work there—physically, emotionally and cognitively. Together, Steelcase and POI offer the most comprehensive range of products, services and ideas to help create and manage the complexity of owning the kind of workplace required today—an interconnected workplace.
Here is the key question that we’d like you to consider. In a global, mobile, 24/7 world, is your workplace ready?
We believe that with the fundamental shift in our world, and the fundamental way that our work has changed, the workplace needs to be fundamentally different too.
We believe that the workplace can be a key strategic business tool that can help a company achieve their business goals by being interconnected, collaborative and inspirational.
The world is more interconnected than ever. The way we work has changed dramatically over the past decade, but most significantly in the past two years.
Understandably, all of these trends have major impact on the way we work. So the question we ask ourselves all the time is “What are the implications of all this on the workplace?”

THE OFFICE RENAISSANCE
For years, many have predicted the death of the office. Mobile technology allows us to work anywhere, so why do you need an office at all? Yet as the world becomes more complex, the places we work have never been more relevant. Work is a social activity and people need places to come together to solve problems. The office isn’t going away—it’s in the midst of a renaissance, where workplaces are becoming something fundamentally different.
