CFO Insights — Workplace redesign: Turning your environment into a productivity machine

Published on: Sep 11, 2014

Corporate real estate is undergoing a revolution. Companies are tearing down their walls, and the result is that shared spaces like “huddle zones” are crowding out individual workspace — including the corner office, in some cases.

Such overhauls tend to yield big cost savings in the form of rent and construction costs. What many companies fail to take into account, however, is that physical space is just one component of today’s workplace. Two other components, namely virtual interactions and management practices, also play critical roles in shaping how people work and how productive they can be.

This issue looks at why it's important for companies to create a unified strategy across the three workplace elements and how CFOs can foster the practices that achieve it, based on research and case studies developed by the Deloitte LLP Center for the Edge.
