5 Tips for the design of innovation-promoting working environments:

  1. Innovations result from being more creative and more efficient Teamwork: For this reason, it is necessary to create areas for collaboration in which employees can exchange, work in a concentrated manner, but can also simply entertain them without any problems. Often, the sparking spark for innovation arises from informal exchange.
  2. Innovation processes require technical support: Intuitively utilizing technological tools that enable equal access to information and simplify sharing, contribute to making the innovation process more transparent and faster.
  3. Undisturbed individual work and efficient teamwork: While co-operation is at the core of an innovation process, areas of adequate privacy are essential as they offer workers the opportunity to retreat, to reflect intensively and to mature ideas.
  4. Creative collaboration mainly takes place in small groups: This means that project studios of different sizes must be available to support teams and their needs. Here, knowledge is shared, jointly developed and used to generate innovative ideas and concepts. Since teams work differently, they should be able to choose from different furniture configurations, creative tools and technical solutions.
  5. Elimination of uneven presences: A major challenge for a global company like Steelcase is to bring cooperating teams that do not work in the same location together. However, distance is not a barrier; rather, the diversity of ideas grows through differences within teams. Objective ist also, Teams virtuell so zu vernetzen, dass „ungleiche Präsenzen“ bestmöglich beseitigt werden.

Increase efficiency and innovation

Numerous studies show that an efficient work environment can support the creativity of employees and thus influence the company's innovative power. Intelligently designed workspaces can inspire employees to inspire and exchange ideas, but also help to structure thoughts and content.

In addition, good ideas and unexpected interactions can be encouraged in suitable rooms, while employees develop a better understanding of their own ideas and sharpen theirs Sense for the connections. A carefully planned workplace can help to better network global teams and thus increase the performance of the individual or a group and thus the innovative strength of the entire company.
