NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--H. Hendy Associates (Hendy), a nationally recognized interior architecture and strategic workplace firm, today announced The New Generation Space, to guide business leaders through long-term transition planning for a future where workspaces are customized for operational resiliency; support remote work as a business strategy; and are committed to health, wellness and organizational resiliency.
Businesses have reached a tipping point where the primary objective of the office as a physical space for employees to gather to do their job has permanently shifted. Moving forward, workspaces will serve a new purpose: to become the heart of an organization; a hub for leadership, collaboration, learning and cultural engagement. These new workplaces will be dynamic and designed to meet the needs of the new blended workforce, which includes both remote and onsite employees.
“The pandemic shutdown has been a catalyst, forcing leaders to operate outside their comfort zone and testing firmly held beliefs about how teams should operate to ensure business success,” said Heidi Hendy, founder and managing principal at Hendy. “This eye-opening experience has demonstrated a new level of organization performance, including high levels of productivity, effective team communication and a new cadence that businesses don’t want to lose.”
Hendy continued, “We are in a new era of business that looks and operates like nothing before – the blended workforce is here to stay. When paired with a reimagined workspace that serves as the nucleus for this fused 'remote/in-office' working model, the office space will have a new purpose.”
Hendy’s team of certified interior architects, workplace strategists and WELL-accredited professionals are helping businesses forge this new frontier with services that include readiness assessments, journey mapping and interactive 3-D space planning. Hendy also offers workplace wellness certification through WELL Building Institute™ and Fitwel® – a star rating system based on wellness strategies successfully implemented.
“The coronavirus pandemic brought health and safety to the forefront,” said Jennifer Walton, Hendy principal and corporate studio director. “Today more than ever, people are more aware of how offices impact their health and wellness. The New Generation Space will help improve the human experience and employee wellbeing through healthy design, construction and operations.”
