On March 22nd at Kings Place, Ecophon sponsored the 15th year of Workplace Trends. As far back as 2012 the conference highlighted the connections between health, wellbeing and performance in the workplace. This year, the conference looked in depth at the topics of Wellbeing and Productivity highlighting new research through case study-driven presentations from industry experts.
This bonus podcast includes short interviews with attendees and speakers from the conference, highlighting the importance of awareness in health and wellbeing when constructing a building. Frans Davidsson from Ecophon highlights the price of improving the working environment is not a cost, but “an investment in your people”. Nicola Gillen supports this through discussing ‘people are the primary aspect’ in new builds.
#Wtrends is about bringing people together for a different perspective of the workplace. As Nigel Oseland explains; this knowledge of the effect of improving our wellbeing at work has been discussed for many years however have only just begun to make a large impact in office designs.
