This technology company gets an upgrade to match their collaborative work style and increased need to share information in real time.
Appian leaders wanted deviate from an enclosed, confined office to an open setting that allowed for better communication and collaboration. However, they needed the design to maintain a sense of privacy in personal workspace areas. To meet this mission, the team layered privacy by incorporating a mix of shared teaming areas, partitioned desks and open conference rooms. The new space offers connectivity, while preserving the privacy that employees need to accomplish daily tasks. This transition, from a traditional cubicle layout to an open and transparent space, was the biggest catalyst for positive changes to Appian’s work processes and office culture.
