‘Leadership in such areas as sustainability, inclusive design and tech-enabled environments…’
MillerKnoll now has its own knowledge microsite on the WORKTECH Academy platform where Academy members and subscribers can access information, ideas, podcasts and blogs on the organisation’s ethos and approach.
Ryan Anderson, Vice President of Global Research and Insights at MillerKnoll, comments: ‘We’re at a pivotal moment in how organisations can better support new ways of working and how our places of work can offer greater value. To help respond to these challenges, MillerKnoll has invested heavily in a research model based upon partnerships with leading thinkers and practitioners. That’s why we’re delighted to become a Global Partner of Worktech Academy – so we can collectively harness the power of what we know to help create better workplaces.’
WORKTECH Academy director Jeremy Myerson adds: ‘MillerKnoll combines two of the most evocative and important names in the history of workplace – Herman Miller and Knoll. Their joint design heritage is amazing – it embraces the iconic work of Eames, Nelson, Saarinen and Florence Knoll. And so is their focus on future needs. We know from our members that refashioning office space is going to be a big call. You’ll find a wealth of MillerKnoll material on our platform now – and we’ll be calling on the company’s experts to provide guidance on how workspace can evolve.’
