At NeoCon, we saw everyone showing their version of the “phone booth” in many sizes, configurations and leveling degrees of privacy both visually and acoustically. So why are these important in today’s office landscape?
InfoComm is the largest professional audiovisual trade show in the United States, with thousands of products for audio, collaboration, video and web conferencing, video displays, control systems, digital signage, security and various other audiovisual related technologies.
NeoCon 2018 was a great success for Steelcase and their family of brands. For the first time, Steelcase, Coalesse, Turnstone and their extensive new network of partners were together in the newly redesigned Steelcase showroom in Chicago.
NBS has been named a 2017 Steelcase Premier Partner recipient for the sixth year in a row – placing us in the top 5% of dealerships throughout the U.S. and Canada. NBS is among only 35 others to receive the honor and one of only four to receive it for six years in a row.
At NBS we strive to create memorable, quality experiences that are unique for our team members and clients. Since aligning our culture with Disney, NBS has rewarded the team with four Disney World trips. The trips are earned by meeting our sales and profitability goals for the previous year.
Innovation is more vital than ever to running a successful company. Not only does innovation provide the basis for generating unique business strategies, it offers a way for companies to gain an edge in entering new markets and creating groundbreaking products.
The workplace is changing. We can no longer create the same spaces and expect different results. Multi-generations are working together, technology is evolving, and organizations are looking to get the most out of their real estate. Today’s workplace needs an ecosystem of spaces designed to adapt and evolve over time.
Meeting through live video is becoming an important tool for companies to connect. According to Polycom’s global survey, 92% of workers surveyed believe that video collaboration technology helps improve relationships and fosters better teamwork. It’s part of the current trend towards smaller huddle rooms and the growing number of employees who work remotely.
This year we dedicated time, resources and love to the animals in our lives and community. NBS Pets shared the love people have for their own pets and animals in need. Many of our team members participated in the yearlong celebration by bringing their pet to work, donating supplies, money or their time to animal organizations.
Steelcase recently launched the fourth cycle of their successful Active Learning Center (ALC) Grant. Steelcase Education seeks to partner with educators to create the most effective, rewarding and inspiring active learning environments to meet the evolving needs of students and teachers.
This past June, NBS kicked off our casting call for pet photos, engaging with the Architecture and Design (A&D) community in Metro Detroit. From firm visits, to ice cream truck stops, we promoted our Fur + Furniture calendar contest and received over 80 photo submissions!
Steelcase recently announced a new relationship with FLOS, a renowned Italian lighting group with a collection of finely crafted decorative lighting including pendants, sconces, table & floor lamps. NBS will offer a collection of FLOS lighting through Steelcase.
Today’s modern business world is changing. Along with advancement in technology, there is a greater emphasis on the value of creativity as a means to generate efficiency and productivity.
What makes a business cool? Is it the work perks, benefits, the office environment? We asked our Michigan-based team members to participate in Crain’s Detroit Cool Places to Work survey earlier this spring, which asked a variety of questions about our benefits, culture and workplace.
At NBS, we can help you reinvent your traditional cafeteria space and turn it into a destination café for connection and collaboration. We have worked with many organizations to convert this overlooked real estate into a space that is leveraged throughout the entire day, not just the lunch hour.
Over 44,000 people attended the InfoComm audiovisual trade show and conference this year – a record-breaking number! They should have counted the equipment displayed. I think it would have been a record-breaker too. It was impossible to see everything and try to take some classes too – but here are some of the highlights.
NeoCon is always buzzing with energy and excitement. This year was no different. Steelcase drew from their insights and new partnership with Microsoft to showcase how bringing place, people and technology together can fuel creativity. The creativity showed – Steelcase was awarded Best Large Showroom by the International Interior Design Association (IIDA) and Contract Magazine.
