Innovation doesn’t happen just because it’s in your business plan.
Companies seeking business innovation first need to foster a culture of innovation. The key is aligning your workspace strategy with your business strategy.
In other words, give your employees the environment they need to be creative and innovative.
Foster creativity with individual and collaborative spaces that support a rhythmic combination of high-focus work and restorative activities (yes this means rest!) throughout the workday.
Organizations that value and encourage this rhythm of activities in the workplace can improve their innovation efforts—and their bottom line.
While the degree of innovation needs
may vary across different organizations,
all organizations need to innovate.
