The process of furniture selection can be a major determining factor in the success or failure of workplace change initiatives – even more significant than eliminating the walls and doors of private offices. Margaret Serrato sets out an array of furniture options being adopted by leading corporations to unlock new workplace efficiencies, improve employee satisfaction and engagement, and mitigate risks. She delivers criteria for selection and placement of pods, high tables, room dividers, phone booth space, standing desks, furniture for collaboration, storage, booth seating areas, and more, to align with organizational objectives and target metrics.
