Workspring Introduced To Inland Steel Building In Chicago

CHICAGO, Jan. 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Workspring, an enhanced workspace destination from Steelcase Inc. (NYSE:SCS), has opened its newest location in the Inland Steel Building located at 30 W. Monroe in Chicago. This is the first Workspring-enabled building in the country, meaning that corporate tenants within the building will have special pricing and privileged access to the Workspring facility located on the fourth floor. Existing Workspring customers and neighboring businesses will also benefit from the close proximity to the site. In addition to spaces designated for group meetings and special events, the location will also feature areas uniquely designed for individual work and collaborative projects.

"Workspring's parent company, Steelcase, has studied the ways in which people work for more than 100 years. We've taken those insights and created Workspring to address the needs of today's worker, who is more mobile and interconnected than ever before," said John Malnor, vice president of Growth Initiatives for Steelcase. "Because Chicago is in the heart of our country and attracts business leaders from all around the world, it was the prefect market to introduce this new flagship location."  

Workspring is a hosted business facility purpose-built for individual work, collaborative meetings, longer-term projects, and full-service events. It takes a holistic approach, bringing together seamlessly integrated service, work consultancy, technology and contemporary design. Workspring's design focuses on the effectiveness of small groups, enabling them to deliver on clearly defined objectives and mission-critical expectations. The Workspring experience is designed to help guests do their best work as individuals and teams.  

What are the benefits of a Workspring Enabled-Building?

In most traditional offices, employees are given designated work stations and space is set aside for conference rooms or project areas, which aren't always occupied. By managing a company from or near a Workspring-enabled building, business leaders can pay to use the amenities when their teams need them and rethink their company's real estate footprint, either using less overall square-footage or repurposing space currently reserved for meetings. This model takes a cue from other "collaborative consumption" behavior, like a shared fitness center in an apartment building where tenants can utilize the on-site facilities and avoid the need to store a treadmill in their home.
