We are trying to design the right work environments for the generations ahead. Our focus is on creating great experiences for the future workforce. We want to design and service the type of workplaces where people want to work, engage, be productive and thrive.

We need your help in defining that experience, how would you visualize it, what a day-in-the-life looks like, what type of space, technology, amenities and services you need to create that experience, and how would you measure it.

Deliverables

Submit short written answers to the following:

1. Productivity

- Describe the settings in which you are most productive.

- Do you think a corporate environment could provide these kinds of spaces? How?

2. Collaboration

- Where do you typically like to go to meet up and collaborate with others on projects and assignments?

- What would this type of space be like in a corporate environment?

3. Setting

- What would you expect to have at a minimum in a corporate office?

- What type of social setting in the workplace would surprise and delight you?

4. Services

- What workplace amenities and services (food, fitness, coffee, etc) would you expect to stay productive and engaged?

- What services and amenities would you consider extraordinary and unexpected?

5. Space

- Space is expensive to build out and gets stale quickly. What would you expect to change often to keep a workplace fresh and interesting?

- Do you any suggestions on how to do this without breaking the bank?

6. Quality

- What metrics and questions would you ask people to measure and monitor satisfaction with a workplace?
