Steelcase and Microsoft, global leaders in their industries, are announcing a multi-faceted, strategic partnership. The two companies are coming together to help solve the workplace challenges we see people facing today and in the future. And the first issue they are tackling, because they know it’s important the customers, is how to better enable creativity at work.
Together with Microsoft, Steelcase developed “Creative Spaces,” a range of settings that thoughtfully bring together place and technology to help people generate new ideas and move them forward.
The Future of Work is Creative
We face global issues that require all of us to unleash our creative potential to solve problems, make new connections and generate ideas. Creativity is not only the domain of artists and musicians. It is a process in which we all can engage and all need to encourage.
Introducing Creative Spaces — an immersive ecosystem that brings together place and technology to help people generate new ideas and move them forward.
Creative work requires alone time to focus while also allowing quick shifts to two-person collaboration. It’s a place to let ideas incubate before sharing.
In the coming months, Steelcase will announce new technology-enabled office solutions built on Microsoft Azure IoT technology, which will provide companies with analytics that improve workplaces and solutions to help employees find the best places to do diverse types of work within the office.
