At the heart of workspace innovation

New requirements for workspaces are leading to new expectations from end-users, who want their workplace to be more modular, central, flexible and hybrid. These changes have been accentuated by the health crisis, which has prompted 85% of companies to change the way they work. With the development of telecommuting and new forms of hybrid working, offices need to be seen as a destination rather than an obligation. And that’s where Waitack comes in.

The experience of development and its challenges

In 2002, Rémi Mangin and Michel Ciucci created Facilitem, which later became CDB . Since then, their value proposition is based on an intimate understanding of their clients’ issues. Their creativity and their ability to anticipate allow them to project organizational changes into their workspaces. For 20 years, they have been pushing and supporting all innovations in order to support and anticipate business challenges.

Birth of Workplace Empowerment

Today, we want to empower workspaces by giving freedom to the entire office real estate value chain to build, design, manage and occupy them. We call this discipline Workplace Empowerment.

The Workplace Empowerment is above all more than 5 years of development and sociological studies and 25 years of experience in space planning and office real estate. But it’s also 3 years of cutting-edge research in mathematics and artificial intelligence to shape the future of workspaces.

Waitack is above all a multidisciplinary team, with unique skills, dedicated to the future of workspaces.
