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.
