PeopleSpace is your partner in creating inspiring spaces, whatever your industry. We transform interior and exterior space to support your people, your work, your culture and your brand. IOS (now PeopleSpace) has been a leading West Coast solutions provider for 19+ years. We're collaborating with Haworth to bring you the added resources of a $2 billion global thought leader to enhance the experience from start to finish.
Culture influences motivation, and space (both indoor and outdoor) can be used to leverage or change culture. PeopleSpace applies years of experience coupled with Haworth’s research-based methodologies and products to help you and your design team profile your cultural ecosystem and plan your space accordingly.
One such tool is the Competing Values Framework® (shown on the left), a model developed out of the 4 dominant culture types in successful organizations.
Our environment impacts our mental well-being and productivity. For the past 15 years our partners at Haworth have studied the importance of design elements or objects within the workplace environment. They found that our workspace has an indirect impact on business goals and because of this, certain design elements or objects within the work environment affect the way employees work. These design elements or objects are called affordances and provide sensory characteristics that intuitively imply how something should be used within the environment. Items such as plants, space, desks, chairs and more can influence our cognitive, emotional and physical well-being. At PeopleSpace we have taken that research and have applied it to an affordance-based approach to modify environments by giving special attention to the significance of the human body, which is characterized by variety and diversity.
