Earning The Commute: Engaging Employees through Facility Design
In today's fast-paced, technology-driven world, the way we work is constantly evolving. The rise of hybrid teams presents new challenges for organizations and managers alike. In this case study presentation, Jennifer Treter and Stephen Wells of Hendrick, an Atlanta-based architecture and design firm, and Amy Hill of Workflow will explore the importance of creating a workplace that engages and motivates employees to come together via case study of the Novelis headquarters, a global leader in aluminum.
Collaborating closely with Novelis, Hendrick and Workflow developed a concept that promoted teamwork while adhering to Novelis' sustainability objectives. The design incorporated natural wood, glass, and innovative daylighting techniques, introducing private meeting rooms and quiet zones for focused work. Communal areas, such as work cafes, were integrated to encourage employee interaction, with health, wellness, and safety as key considerations in the design.
