You did it. You completed your workplace renovation or moved into a great, new office or [insert your workplace investment of choice]. Your people are settled and their productivity is palpable. Your job here is done. Right? Not quite. Yes, the project is complete, but that attitude leaves you with a murky outlook for success.
Even a new office can underperform.
In a new office, a first office or just a much better version of the old one, too many companies assume the aftermath of a workplace decision is out of their hands.
What happens when you neglect the office—even a new and shiny one? It drifts to places you didn’t anticipate or you find that it doesn’t perform to the level you hoped it would. What’s worse, it’ll be another big project before you come back to this stuff and now you’re stuck with a huge workplace investment that just doesn’t perform.
