ArcHR

Your Path to the Modern Workplace

ArcHR is at the heart of everything
we do and believe. It is a new, human-centered
practice for how people work today -- and tomorrow.

Purpose

Infusing Architecture with HR Goals and Objectives

ArcHR goes beyond aesthetics to integrate organizational behavior,
brand marketing, and environmental design. The result: work and
learning spaces that are more purposeful, effective, and, above all
else, informed. This is what ArcHR is all about.

WHAT IS ArcHR?

The short answer: human resource infused architecture. All studies show that human capital is both the biggest business expense and the most important and powerful attribute to success.

WSA's response to that: Disruption. The premise of ArcHR is to utilize elements of human resources and organizational behavior to study users. We want to know the way they work, how they interact in groups, how they manage conflict, how they navigate hierarchy, etc. The days of form over function are over. It's time for space to reflect culture. What if you had a space that already took this research into account?

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that 1/4 Americans dread going to work? According to a 2019 study done by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), only 38% of Americans in the workforce are satisfied with their job.

WHAT MAKES AN ENVIRONMENT WORK?

Increased ROI, increased employee engagement/satisfaction, streamlined change, accuracy in the depiction of your culture.

How? ArcHR is built around three actions.

User Patterns: We'll observe how talent prefers to use space and assess existing conditions.

User Queries: We'll seek information from talent to match needs with spacial requirements.

Brand Translation: We'll conceptualize brand parameters and their impact on the designed environment.

The result? An environment that works.
