Muscatine, IA - Allsteel Inc., a major contract furniture designer and manufacturer, is committed to creating and building workplace solutions that provide answers to real-world issues. One way that Allsteel and its product development teams stay ahead of the curve is through substantial investment in research and development.
"Workplace trends are central to the development of solutions that our customers need now and in the future. Our research generates insights that feed directly into new products, services and information that can be used to enhance the workplace," explains Kelly Sterk, Allsteel workplace research manager.
Allsteel's R&D teams share many of their findings directly with customers, architects and designers, facility managers and others through the firm's online Knowledge Center, which contains white papers, workplace trends, project profiles and more.
Allsteel continues to add to the online library with its latest white paper titled "Managing Multiple Generations in the Workplace"-a detailed report which takes an in-depth look at the dynamics of multiple generations working side-by-side in today's office settings.
"There can be up to four generations working together, and each has its own assumptions, expectations and needs," adds Sterk. "This poses a challenge for facility managers, architects and interior designers alike to create workplaces that make all workers feel valued and rewarded and encourage them to reach their highest levels of performance. Our latest white paper outlines workforce trends and potential implications for organizations."
