MillerKnoll on empowering intentional, inclusive and playful workplaces

2024 marks the tenth anniversary of a powerful strategic partnership between DWG and MillerKnoll, a collective of dynamic brands that come together to design the world in which we live.

This partnership between DWG and MillerKnol is celebrated in a captivating conversation between Ryan Anderson, MillerKnoll’s Vice President of Global Research and Insights, and Digital Workplace Impact’s host, Nancy Goebel.

Ryan’s work focuses on designing workplaces that support healthy, inclusive and productive communities, and the pair discuss his vision for 2025 – a year he believes will focus on holistic wellbeing, connected distributed teams, user-initiated change, and more.

Together, Nancy and Ryan explore what can be learned from 2023 – the challenges and opportunities – and how digital workplace leaders can make 2024 a year that will really count. Empowering work through intentional design, the benefits of being playful and joyful at work, inclusive leadership and the balance of managing strong and weak ties all come together to make this a powerful conversation.

The pair ask just how can we use our corporate, digital and home-working spaces to enable a range of experiences to help foster healthy working relationships? For intriguing insights into these areas, along with some actionable ideas, join Nancy and Ryan by listening today.

Ryan Anderson portrait
Ryan Anderson is VP of Global Research & Insights at MillerKnoll, leading its research, sharing insights across the world, & providing workplace strategy & application design services to MillerKnoll customers. For 30+ years his work has centred on how the places we inhabit can be designed to support healthy, inclusive & productive communities.

Offices in their early origins were designed to supervise work and to express status, and that's not the function any more. You can't operate under this model where I intend to observe everyone doing their work to ensure they're productive. I don't think any organization can remain relevant and competitive with that mindset. Instead, it's all about using these various environments, whether that's a corporate workspace or a home workspace or a flex space or others, to enable that range of experiences that fosters really, really healthy working.
