Knoll, Inc. (NYSE: KNL), a constellation of design-driven brands for the workplace and home, has launched k. talks — a virtual series dedicated to today’s changing workplace dynamics.
k. talks leverage Knoll expertise on workplace planning and strategy, including the impact of Gen Z and the qualities of effective teams. For any individual seeking to mitigate distraction in the digital age or managers looking to streamline remote work for their team, k. talks will provide a holistic, research-driven point-of-view that looks to the future of the workplace while keeping its finger on the pulse of the current moment.
“Our approach to research is always to answer more or less the same two questions. How can we help people do their best work? How can we help organizations design to attract and retain the right talent?” said Tracy Wymer, Knoll Vice President, Workplace Strategy.
k. talks recognize that organizations across the country have quickly pivoted to remote ways of working. In response, Knoll ideated the program as a digital-first workplace summit — offering engaging and cross-disciplinary ideas that answer Wymer’s two chief questions through different lenses.
Designed for digital accessibility, varying in format from live panels to interactive presentations, k. talks provide professionals across contract furniture, architecture, interior design, technology and workplace strategy disciplines with research-driven information applicable to both remote work and the physical workspace as home base.
“We look forward to showing how these ideas apply to almost anyone and highlight the commonalities within the workplace today,” added Kylie Roth, Knoll Senior Director, Workplace Research, noting, “k. talks is free and open-to-the-public, probing today’s thinkers on top-mind-workplace issues while offering Knoll insights and opinions as well. Not only are our tips backed by research, they can be immediately adopted by anyone navigating the remote or non-remote workplace today.”
