ASID Foundation Selects Cornell, Michigan State for Workplace Improvement Grants

29 January, 2014

-By Holly O'Dell


The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) Foundation has selected Cornell University and Michigan State University, working with the Herman Miller, as recipients of its Transform grants for applied study in interior design and human behavior. The researchers’ work will allow the interior design industry to improve workplace design and demonstrate its return on investment.

Cornell University researchers will use social-sensing technology to study 200 LG and Samsung knowledge workers at three different sites to gather insight into the workers' behavior and experiences. Meanwhile, the Michigan State University and Herman Miller team will use qualitative and quantitative methodologies to determine design’s effect on the culture and performance of nearly 100 high-performing companies.

Results from both projects, expected in May 2015, will quantify the financial effects of design practices on employee retention, engagement, and productivity. The ASID Foundation will award more than $120,000 to fund the projects.
