In 2017 Ontario Power Generation created a new mandate that would result in refined business practices and a culture more closely connected to their purpose and values. What they needed was a modern and collaborative work environment that appealed to employees and changing business needs, while generating cost savings through more efficient use of their office space.
Using its intensive research process, figure3’s design team developed a workplace transformation strategy to support OPG’s bold vision. The much smaller footprint (from 5 floors to 2) created a new and exciting workplace allowing for more connection between staff, aligned with the organization’s One OPG culture shift and OPG’s future. The new environment promotes a greater sense of ownership and involvement among staff and allows them to become more performance-oriented, and demonstrate industry leadership. This project will serve as a template for the transformation of new OPG facilities across Ontario.
