The LEGO Group's Timothy Ahrensbach on Offices Worth Coming To Get Reworked

    • Management

Mention LEGO and most people will immediately picture building and playing with the company's famous multicolored bricks. But there's another whole level of design that goes into building an office where employees can't wait to come to work.
In this episode of Get Reworked, we talk to Tim Ahrensbach, head of workplace experience at The LEGO Group, about how the Danish company completely redesigned the corporate office to be a place that is more than just a place to get work done. It's about encouraging play and building the connections that bring people together.

"We've done that in a really exciting way that makes our colleagues, when they come into LEGO campus, realize there's a reason why I've gone into the office today," Tim said. "I'm not just doing it out of habit or because there's this policy."
Highlights of the conversation include:
 
Lessons learned from the April opening of Lego's new 600,000 square-foot campus. What workplace experience looks like at LEGO. LEGO's outlook on the hybrid workplace. What employers can learn from the hotel and hospitality industry. What makes an office worth coming to.  
Plus, co-hosts Siobhan Fagan and Mike Prokopeak talk with Tim about go-to karaoke songs, what makes co-working spaces good, and Tim's all-time favorite LEGO set. Listen in for more.
