What does “work” look like these days? Where does it take place? How do we expect it to change? And how can workplace strategists and designers create environments that provide people what they really need?

hok-forward-workplace-reportIn the inaugural issue of HOK Forward, our WorkPlace group examines the market forces and design trends reshaping the future of work.

The report highlights our latest thinking around a broad array of workplace topics including:

  • Thinking beyond the open plan
  • Creating a human-centric workplace
  • Designing for health and wellness
  • Preparing for the needs of Generation Z
  • Understanding the rising popularity and challenges of coworking
  • Reinventing the financial workplace
  • Using the workplace to build culture
  • Fusing different space types to create rich, experiential environments
