The Talent Behind talentArc

August 3, 2023 • Sam Cejda

Meet the team driving WSA’s unique talentArc process.

What is talentArc?

In short, it’s HR-infused architecture. It’s a process by which our architects and designers partner with client teams to learn about their organizational structure and culture. The premise of talentArc is to study organizations and the people in them. We want to know how employees work, how people interact, and what shared values an organization has.

Our process plugs in before the standard design process, and builds foundational research that serves as a tool to make smarter, faster, and more strategic decisions at all project phases. Through these four areas, talentArc explores how organizations can develop unique environments, align their values, and share their stories.

  • Organizational Structure
  • Culture and Values
  • External Branding
  • User Patterns and Queries


Who’s behind it all?

We’re introducing the team that is behind talentArc. They are architects, interior designers, and environmental designers dedicated to perfecting the partnership process.
