In mid-2013, Pearson announced a new organisational structure that would accelerate their push into digital learning, consolidating their global divisional companies under one group. With any such corporate transformation calls for a need to reinvigorate the workplace as it evolves. Any pursuant for the workplace interior design would have to support this new demand for change adaptation and enhancement.
Founded in 1844, Pearson is one of the largest and most beloved brands in educational publishing in the world. We are all familiar with Penguin books, the Ladybird series and even The Economist.
ID21 undertook a study of their existing office and work styles, and were able to carry this leap forward for Pearson with a future-forward design that incorporates mobility, flexibility and versatility that would support their new organisational culture.
Pearson has embraced its new open working environment, and we can proudly say that we were part of this lively chapter in the workplace evolution of this 150-year-old brand.
