Productivity and the power of proximity in our post-pandemic offices is the theme of the next Facilitate webinar, to be held on 24 May.
As organisations recalculate their future office footprints, an often mentioned yet difficult to measure metric is the ‘water cooler moment’ – those planned or more often unplanned meetings in familiar surroundings through which camaraderie, company culture and common purpose can be nurtured.
Putting a value on these interactions is key to determining the size and design of office space as well as influencing workplace policies. But conducting such an exercise means considering a wide gamut of issues.
Our webinar will consider the power of physical presence to the productivity and overall corporate wellbeing of employers and those they employ. Joining Facilitate editor Martin Read to discuss the issue are:
– director of innovation at Advanced Workplace Associates. A cognitive engineer by training, she is a human factors specialist, she is skilled at gathering and understanding the needs of users and translating them into functional specifications. Her work focuses on developing workplaces and experiences that enhance the day to day satisfaction of those who work in them.
– workplace consultant at TSK and a specialist in helping organisations define and implement new workplace design strategies through a combination of evidence-based data capture and interview techniques. His knowledge and experience has been essential on projects for global companies including Coca Cola, Rolls Royce, and Northern Trains.
– key account specification manager at BRITA Vivreau with experience of working in both the construction market and consumer goods industry and an interest in all aspects of wellbeing (including biophilic design) and collaboration in the office.
