Venue: George R. Brown Convention Center
Room: 320A
Space is never neutral and will therefore always either help or hinder an organization's strategies. For the past 17 years, SIGNAL has specialized on using strategic space design as a unique tool for creating changes and achieving organizational and financial results by collecting data regarding the relationship between space and performance.

Our experiences leaves no doubt:

• Managers and organizations that strategically use design of physical environment in developing their businesses achieve significant competitive advantages and straightforward results through better well-being, increased efficiency and better customer experiences.

• By combining data collection and “before and after” measurements, top management will gain an important overview of how to fully use their space as a resource for better performance – and not just an operating expense.

Global Head of Workspace Management & Design Gitte Andersen will discuss the highlights from her book 'Space at Work'. The book is written based on optimization of square meters in the workplace – and how utilization and the use of full potential of space will create an increase in both employee satisfaction as well as enhancement of general performance.
