An elevated experience.
Creating a Living Office is an elevated experience of work for people, and helps organizations achieve strategic goals. Goodmans takes this experience well beyond attractive office spaces. Says CEO Adam Goodman, “Organizations need to balance purpose against profits, and the needs of the individual against the needs of the group. When all of these factors are in harmony, you can achieve prosperity.” Goodmans’ unique approach to developing and supporting culture through design instantly communicates a feeling unique to each organization. Goodmans’ own offices demonstrate a value of transparency. “When you walk in to our new office, you will instantly feel that transparency, even before you have had a chance to cognitively process what we are trying to accomplish,” explains Adam Goodman.
