February Webinar Meeting
Wednesday, February 3, 2021 | 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EST
The global pandemic has fundamentally changed how we live, learn and work. People have new needs and expectations, requiring shifts in the way we think about buildings and the workplace. Since the pandemic shuttered offices, schools and communities – Steelcase has been doing ongoing research. Partnering with MIT on 8 primary studies in 10 countries, we’ve talked to more than 32,000 people and have analyzed 8,000 floorplans (with 40,000 workstations) and our research is continuing now every quarter across the globe.
