EUA, a seven time winner of the Top Workplace award, understands the power of leveraging the workplace environment as a tool to recruit, engage and retain top talent. Clients today are competing more than ever for talent, and the strategic shift of Turner Loth to Workplace Strategy Leader further supports clients through the overall process of strategy to influence workplace transformation. Workplace Strategy is a growing area of EUA’s business, and her leadership is intended to strengthen this service, with a heightened emphasis on change leadership, to ultimately enhance the built environment impact for clients. This service is an extension of the work already performed by over 70 professionals dedicated to the design of workplace environments across the country.
“While we have delivered Workplace Strategy with a variety of current and past clients, our goal with this service is to further align organizational culture, goals and employees with the right space and technology to elevate an employee’s opportunity for success, thereby enhancing organizational success,” said Heather Turner Loth. “I am excited about our differentiated approach. We are intentional in the way we deliver these services ensuring we are supporting our clients through change leadership and customizing that approach to each organization and its unique culture. We are harnessing the opportunity to deliver our services around the heart of our clients—their people.”

When asked about the service, Rich Tennessen, President of EUA said, “Regardless of industry sector or geographic region, our clients are competing to attract, engage and retain the best and brightest talent.
