Workstation trends may come and go, but we know that the ability to customize is key.
All workstations, desks and chairs in our new space are designed to be flexible and promote movement.

Employees can move, raise or lower their desks to suit how they want to work each day. That’s worth standing up for.
We’re creating greater diversity in our workforce and our work environment, freeing people to choose how they want to work when they’re in the office.

Long before we selected Gensler as the architect and dug into design, we asked employees what they liked and didn’t like about our space.

Through our research mechanisms, we’re ensuring that employees see themselves in our final design.
We’ve anticipated rapidly evolving business trends and acted decisively to keep JLL in the lead – and that includes selecting furniture and fixtures that make for a healthier, happier workplace. Our flexible, Studio-style office is based on the mutual vision of management and employees. We’re confident that whatever kind of work is called for on a given day, our people will find the ideal setting in which to do it.
