  • Engagement in Global Workplace presented by Steelcase   |   Jean Peck, instructor
    credit: HSW/Basic
    Course Description

    At Steelcase we’ve also been exploring this issue of engagement for several years and we believe there’s another variable that many organizations hadn’t thought about – the places where people work. We’ve known, from decades of research, that our physical surroundings can shape people’s behaviors and attitudes about their overall experience at work. But we really wanted to understand this issue of engagement to see how the workplace can help, and what things could make the biggest impact. To help us find answers, we conducted a study together with the global research firm, Ipsos in 17 countries with over 12,000 people. The research revealed five key findings about engagement and the global workplace. But here’s the most important thing we found: the workplace plays a role in employee engagement.

  • Making Distance Disappear-Unleashing the Power of Distributed Teams
    Course Description

    In today’s economic landscape organizations can’t allow distance to be a barrier to effective teams. As distributed teams become pervasive, the challenges they face become more evident. As businesses rush to become faster, smarter and more innovative, talent is more important than ever. Many teams are now distributed, using video to workacross locations, time zones and cultures. But a constantly nagging problem they face is presence disparity—i.e., those working remotely have a different experience than those who are side-by-side. Presence disparity isn’t just a nuisance. It threatens productivity and makes collaboration taxing. Businesses are investing in video as a way to solve the challenges. But what’s often missing is an understanding of how to optimize video technology in physical space.
