The American Society of Interior Designers has released the findings from their comprehensive pre- and post-occupancy research studies from their Washington DC HQ. The research shows how workplace design positively influences health, wellness, employee satisfaction, and work performance.
"We're proud to share all aspects of this journey with the design community and the world at large," commented ASID CEO Randy Fiser, Hon. FASID. "The overall design of this space was driven by the research and data collected during pre-occupancy and its success is demonstrated through the post-occupancy data. ASID is committed to sharing updated evaluations as we continue to enhance our employee experience and improve workplace utilization."
In partnership with Cornell University, Delos, and the Innovative Workplace Institute, ASID researched the impact of innovative workplace design on behavior and performance, how spatial design supports organizational goals, and the impact of design on human, organizational, and environmental sustainability. Research was conducted through a series of in-depth interviews and employee surveys, sociometric data culled from badges worn voluntarily by employees, and environmental metrics from the building and measured within the office.
