Today’s corporate designers are increasingly looking to educational environments for inspiration. As Generation Z transitions from school to the workforce, they bring with them unique styles of communication and interaction that are leading to innovations in workplace design in order to help maximize their success. Consider workplaces that facilitate transition from collaborative to private workspaces, utilize robust cloud and IoT solutions, and provide easy access to digital information and learning. Younger workers place an inherent value on sunlight and natural materials, as well as wellness and work/life balance. Look for companies to provide more well-rounded opportunities for their workers through workplace design and vibrant locations: the foosball table in the lounge is no longer enough.
