Kimball Sponsors the Next Work Environment Competition

Kimball is proud to sponsor The Next Work Environment Competition from Work Design Magazine. Given the challenges that COVID-19 has placed on our health, economy, and workspaces, this competition seeks creative minds to design innovative, work environments that are safe, productive, and comfortable for the future. This crisis is impacting everyone, but we have an opportunity to reconsider our work environments now and create new spaces that inspire and rejuvenate us.
“The way the world is thinking about work has changed, and it’s going to take all of us to redesign the future,” said Wendy Murray, Vice President, Marketing at Kimball. “At Kimball, we have a rich heritage of embracing the unknown and working to craft what’s next. That’s why we’re so proud to support other progressive thinkers through Work Design Magazine’s new competition.”
Participants will choose one of the seven following themes: a workspace; an office building lobby/ common area; a coworking space; a workstation; a collaborative space; a home office space; or a new change management process. While The Next Work Environment Competition is a design competition, for solutions to be effective, participants will need to consider policies, operations, technology solutions, and organizational interventions. Diverse and multidisciplinary teams are encouraged as well as individual entries.
All submissions are due by June 30, 2020 and will then be reviewed by the jury. Winners will be announced on August 31, 2020. To learn more about participation rules and guidelines and to submit your entry, please visit:
