Helping You unlock human promise

At Steelcase, we are passionate about helping architects, designers and real estate professionals develop great environments wherever work happens. We do this through a four pronged approach of being insightful, intentional, interactive, and inspirational.

Being insightful is part of our brand essence. We share the insights from our global team of researchers – Workspace Futures – regarding the needs of humans in the built environment. Our goal of being intentional is about understanding the time demands of your community and having a purpose for our activities in hopes they align with specific needs.

Being interactive is about providing resources that align with your process and engage you through conversation or co-creation. Our aspiration of being inspirational is quite ambitious; however, it is our attempt to provide opportunities for you to express your creativity and remind you why you entered your profession.

Ultimately, our mission is to be a desired resource for you by offering our latest research, user-centered products, tools and resources to make your jobs easier, have fun and with the intention of delighting our mutual customers.

Think Better

Think Better

In workplaces throughout the world, scenarios of near-constant distraction have become the norm. We text during conversations, email during meetings, skimp on lunch breaks to catch up on work—always trying to process faster, handle more and work harder, often without realizing just how much we’re degrading our mental capabilities in the process.

Thankfully, our ability to focus is still salvageable. Steelcase researchers have gained new insights into how our brains shape thoughts, emotions and behaviors, and then applied this new science to create concepts for how thoughtfully designed workplaces can help workers better manage their attention.

Making Distance Disappear

Making Distance Disappear

In today’s economic landscape organizations can’t allow distance to be a barrier to effective teams. As distributed teams become pervasive, the challenges they face become more evident.

As businesses rush to become faster, smarter and more innovative, talent is more important than ever. Many teams are now distributed, using video to work across locations, time zones and cultures. But a constantly nagging problem they face is presence disparity—i.e., those working remotely have a different experience than those who are side-by-side.

Presence disparity isn’t just a nuisance. It threatens productivity and makes collaboration taxing. Businesses are investing in video as a way to solve the challenges. But what’s often missing is an understanding of how to optimize video technology in physical space.

The Privacy Crisis

The Privacy Crisis

In organizations all over the world, people are facing brand-new problems that require sharing information and putting knowledge together in new ways. For all the right reasons, collaboration has become the big engine for progress and innovation. Although workplaces today make it seemingly easy for people to collaborate, most leaders remain dissatisfied with the pace and frequency of breakthroughs. Uncertain of what to do next, they hire new talent, carve out trendy group spaces, add technology or step up team training efforts—but still don’t see the gains they desire.

Wellbeing: A Bottom Line Issue

Wellbeing: A Bottom Line Issue

Feeling good at work drives business performance. Leaders are realizing that fostering collaboration, creativity, and flexibility requires a rigorous focus on employees wellbeing. Our research and insights show how workplace design can help organizations attain employee wellbeing and business results they desire.

To understand the positive drivers of wellbeing, Steelcase researchers delved deeply into the topic. After synthesizing research and investigating diverse notions of wellbeing, the team came to a conclusion: Wellbeing is systemic and holistic, integrating many dimensions, including people’s physical, cognitive and psychological needs. They went on to conclude that the places where people come together to work can be designed to have a positive impact on a variety of dimensions of worker wellbeing.
