  • "We need to focus on getting people up, active, engaged and inspired. But we also need to create balanced spaces where people can focus and collaborate. The best way to do that is to truly know and understand who you are as an organization and how you work, and then design to that specific DNA."

    Building a Modern Work Environment

    Work is changing. Advances in technology, changing customer and employee demographics, implementation of new business initiatives and LEAN process improvements, limiting our environmental impact, shifting employee expectations, and rising real estate costs — these are all factors in building a modern work environment.

    The state of Washington’s workplace strategy initiative is an effort, directed by Governor Inslee through Executive Order 16-07 and led by OFM, to help agencies identify, experiment with and adopt innovative ways to support its business by modernizing the physical environment, providing greater workplace flexibility and enabling a more mobile workforce. The focus is on looking at how, when and where people do their best work and on providing the necessary options and tools.

    Building a Modern Work Environment is about trying new ideas — thinking outside the cubicle — and creating an effective, efficient workplace that best suits the important work we do.
