BCG create an office of the future in Hudson Yards,
A very different type of workspace has been created for The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) at their new home in New York at 10 Hudson Yards on Manhattan's far West Side. Based around the idea of ‘neighbourhoods’ for practice or industry clusters, it provides shared spaces for both their consultancy and non-consultancy people in an environment that promotes community and interaction, with a focus on energy and activity-based spaces.
Hear about the business drivers for the new space as well as the approach and analysis that defined a radical solution for the firm. Key enablers will be explained, from the workplace App to innovative technologies that powered a new way of working and led to a new concept of the ‘collision coefficient’ being born.
All attendees will have the chance to do a tour of BCG either at the beginning or end of the masterclasses.
RG/A, New York has created an amazing new space for its people across the road from Hudson Yards, designed by Foster and Partners to be one of the world’s first Digital Workplaces
“We come to RG/A to do the best work of our lives.” This bold statement drives the vision to create a ‘people-centric’ workplace that enhances what makes RG/A special and focuses on the 3Rs – recruiting, retention and revenue.
RG/A has measured a 5% improvement in attrition since moving into their remarkable new workspace and its no wonder that people don’t want to leave. The first impression is a magical arrival, with a reception space based around a buzzy café and digital displays welcoming you by name.
And it is in the digital realm that the workspace really excels. Sir Normal Foster designed the environment and his vision was to use digital media to get people to ‘look up’. And this digital ‘canopy’ surrounds you with images, ideas and content… a digital experience that extends to an App that connects people, space and content. A central content management system (Scala CMS) acts as a cultural unifier bringing global knowledge and ideas together for the website, the App and the space.
In the space, 500 Bluetooth beacons provides a location layer that allows localisation of experience. And this includes access to the content and campaigns being worked on by teams in the space where you are standing – content aware Apps to connect creatives and knowledge workers in physical space.
Our market-leading WORKTECH conferences are “unmissable” events for senior corporate workplace professionals.
