Visioning sessions are opportunities to engage client leadership and staff about the current and desired future states of the organization as a whole. This participatory activity is a central component of our approach to workplace strategy, which aims to always align recommendations with both organizational strategic objectives as well as employee feedback.
Savills Studley’s visioning tools are committed to incorporating both client leadership and staff perspectives on an organization’s goals, processes, and issues. Our team uses the feedback collected during the visioning sessions to recommend a spatial strategy and planning. For example, a desire for improved communication between departments may indicate the need for the rearrangement of work seats around common spaces that encourage spontaneous collaboration.
These conversations provide context for how the future workplace can best align with an organization’s strategic vision and employee satisfaction criteria. The insights uncovered through these visioning sessions provide clients with benefits such as valuable leverage points in renewal negotiations, measures for comparing relocation options and qualifying future workplace designs. Furthermore, these participatory sessions are powerful ways to engage staff in the space planning process so that they feel like they have a stake in shaping the future work environment.
