Workplace Strategy

As technology revolutionizes where and how people work, companies have an unprecedented opportunity to rethink how they manage their two most important assets: employees and real estate. Our Workplace Strategy team helps your organization connect both to your company’s strategy, optimizing your competitive edge and return on investment. Our approach is scalable to any size project, with services focusing on real estate and portfolio analysis; workplace strategy; and change management.

Real Estate and Portfolio Analysis
Like a tailored suit, the perfect office space can make your organization look good, perform well, and save you money over time. We can help your organization find its fit. We assess your spatial needs and develop occupancy scenarios so that you can choose the right property for your short- and long-term goals. Services we provide include Restack Analysis, Stay/Go Analysis, Building Fit evaluation, and Portfolio Planning.

Workplace Strategy
Together with you, we create solutions that maximize your workspace and deepen employee satisfaction. We follow a unique, evidence-based approach to achieve this, collecting primary data through interviews, assessments, and visioning sessions; interpreting the findings; and then combining them with benchmarks and original research from our in-house Human Experience labs. Our services include Workplace Strategy Development, Visioning, Mobility Strategy, Design Guidelines, and Pre- and Post-Occupancy evaluations.

Workplace Change Management
Workplace change can require employees to think, feel, or act differently—behaviors that can be difficult for people to adopt. We can smooth your workplace transition by providing the process and tools to create buy-in, minimize disruption, and maximize success. Services include Change Readiness Assessments, Strategy, Communications, Training, and Implementation.

Perkins+Will’s Workplace Strategy team also partners with other practices in the firm, sharing its expertise with planners and strategists designing healthcare, higher education, and science and technology facilities and campuses.
