April CEU: New Metrics of Place
Sponsored by:

Traditional workspaces don't support the way people actually work today. To find out what kind of workspace designs do, Herman Miller is studying progressive work environments around the world. This CEU summarizes the findings of that research so far, including six emerging patterns of use and associated metrics that organizations can draw on to create, measure, and manage high performing work environments that empower people to do their best work.

Jesse Garcia
Senior Workplace Knowledge Consultant
Western US & Western Canada
Herman Miller - Performance Environments

Jesse is responsible for helping clients envision the future and optimize space based on their own business drivers. He delivers the entire Performance Environments offering which includes: Visioning; Pre & Post Occupancy Evaluation (Space Utilization, Surveys, Focus Groups, Observational Ethnography); and Change Management.

Jesse is also a knowledge leader at Herman Miller, bringing relevant insight to our customers and designer partners. His research interests include: the rise of women in degree programs in the US and how this may impact the future of work; employee engagement as it relates to the physical environment; constructs around productivity and performance in the workplace; and the strategic role of change management as a pathway to success.

Jesse joined Herman Miller in 2007 managing the Customer Experience in North Texas. He elevated the sales engagement process by using his professional and academic background to share insight in a manner that created opportunities for clients to learn and explore.
