How one of New York’s Acclaimed “Coolest of Cool” Offices adapts to a Flexible Working Model
Join award winning Public Relations firm King + Company’s CEO Judith R. King and her team as they share how their firm is not only maintaining but enhancing their culture, collegiality and connectivity as they’ve transitioned over the past few months from working together in a new, “to die for” office – one that’s been published to much acclaim – to dispersed locations.
King + Company, a tightly knit firm that packs a big wallop in the PR world, created a spectacular office space customized to reflect not only the personality of the firm but its individual stakeholders. Acknowledged in the press as “the coolest of cool spaces” where everyone wanted to work, King also attracted “simpatico” sub-tenants and movie locations scouts to use their space as part of their real estate right-sizing and income-generating strategy. This gave the firm a “jump” on flexible and agile remote working that comes less naturally for others.
Yet, acknowledging from the outset that (even spectacular) space is only part of the equation, Judith had long since instituted ongoing activities to strengthen bonds among internal stakeholders. So when Covid-19 hit, dispersing employees to remote locations, Judith and team didn’t skip a beat – they just doubled down on daily check-in and touch-down activities already in place, and so essential to ensuring that individuals know what an integral part they play in the firm’s success.
In an interactive session based on the firm’s belief that “the office” is not going away, the King + Company team will share their views on:
• The importance (and purpose) of the office: before Covid-19 and going forward
• How to make people happy in their work … and is that scalable from small to large firms?
• How King + Company finds the kind of people that thrive in their environment
At King + Company, everything is special because the people are special.
