The pandemic has forever changed how we work.
We help clients create intentional work experiences wherever work happens.

How We Can Help

The global pandemic has created a significant opportunity to reimagine the employee work experience. Steelcase Applied Research + Consulting (ARC) can help you navigate transformation and the intricate process of change.

Questions and opinions about if, how and when we return to the office are everywhere: How do you assess the right approach for your organization? What considerations can inform the return or continued work from home? What change readiness efforts are needed?

Clients are engaging with us for thought leader experiences and big picture planning, as well as unique consulting needs. We help organizations envision the future.
