In a world of dizzying and constantly accelerating change, the idea of the ‘workplace’ is under extreme pressure. Here in 2020, the global coronavirus pandemic has delivered a seismic shock to the concept, enforcing remote working and raising a host of unfamiliar questions.
Launched by the creators of the MAD World Summit - the world's premier workplace culture, mental health and wellbeing event - the Workplace Wellbeing by Design digital conference will address these questions and explore the range of ‘soft’ and ‘hard’ issues driving innovative and humane workplace design.
Aimed at the wide community of professionals who live, breathe, eat and sleep the complexities of workplace design. The online sessions are designed for discussion, exploration and practical takeaways; with a line-up of distinguished speakers from across the spectrum - and a few surprises from left field. There are 5 sessions in bitesize chunks, each starting at 3pm BST, every day of London Design Festival week from 14-18 September.
"On the one hand, humanity or ‘humane-ness’ is gaining traction as a fundamental motivator for workplace design; on the other hand, workplace behaviour is being transformed by the massive impact of digital technologies. A new machine age meets a newly humanised age in a Covid-19 impacted maelstrom of culture change – and culture change is inextricably intertwined with both design and wellbeing”.
