As organizations figure out how to create inspiring spaces for employees where they can work, collaborate and engage, there is a need for human-centric solutions. The need to unlock human promise is not just an option but also a business imperative that has never been more significant than in today’s hyper-connected day and age. Steelcase invests in-depth time understanding employee patterns and how organizations can enhance their culture and performance. And, that’s how they design furniture that meets form and function.
Steelcase first entered in India in 2008 and established a presence in tier 1 and 2 cities, primarily working on commercial projects. At Mirania Workspace Solution’s Steelcase launch event, speaking on the growth in India, Mr. Uli Gwinner, President Asia Pacific said, “Steelcase is in a unique business where we are seeing rapid demand and innovation with Indians companies moving from traditional to modern spaces. The young workforce and huge stress on better work environments are major motivators for us”.
