Showcasing spaces that epitomize the most advanced workplace strategies will be 20 organizations including Boston Consulting Group, Blackstone, Group M, according to event organizers Advanced Workplace Associates (AWA).

Returning to New York after a successful debut in 2018 that raised more than $20,000, Workplace Week events support the “I Have A Dream” Foundation (NY).

Tour highlights include:

Boston Consulting Group (BCG). Housing more than 700 employees in an activity-based office design, BCG’s new home spans 193,000-square-foot office on floors 42 to 47 at newly opened 10 Hudson Yards. Designed by Gensler, the space champions ‘collision coefficient’ and serendipitous interaction in an open and dynamic space featuring myriad styles, themes, looks and finishes, supported by state-of-the-art technology, and stunning views of the Hudson.

Blackstone Innovations, the technology team at Blackstone Group L.P., the American multinational private equity, alternative asset management and financial services firm based in New York City previews its space designed by M Moser. The design rationale for its recent 30,000-square-foot-office in the heart of Lexington Avenue was to create an agile environment that fosters a culture of collaboration and provocative thinking.

GroupM, the world’s largest media investment management firm, moved to its new 700,000-square-foot headquarters in 3 World Trade Center last summer in a strategic merger of office space for the network’s distinct brands. To consolidate three separate Midtown offices, HOK designed a shared space that includes a two-story town hall workspace, coffee bar, wellness center, game room, career center, tech hub, grab-and-go café, and outdoor terrace.

“Workplace Week New York was created to showcase how business leaders and their facilities, people services and workplace teams can champion change in order to improve engagement, productivity, wellbeing and business performance,” says Andrew Mawson, founder of AWA and creator of Workplace Week. “The charitable workplace festival is back due to huge demand to shine a light on the organizations that use workplace change as a tool for business transformation by embracing new, modern approaches to work that help people be at their best.”
