Workplace Innovation Passport


Immerse yourself in workplace innovation!

Our Workplace Innovation Passport is your key to experience amazing work spaces all over the city — think of it as our distributed exhibition on workplace design.

Welcome to our pilot program where we hope you’ll take advantage of the unique access our host workplaces are offering and learn what makes each workplace special in turns of organization, cultural, and design. This is a prototype program — when the pilot is complete we’d love your feedback — it will help us shape this program before we launch publicly. Book a tour and explore!
