Designing a good working environment
Friday 19 June 2015
We all know that where we work and the areas we work in affect us mentally and physically, and thus the quality of our work. Many of us struggle with problems in our existing workspaces and would like to be able to improve them.
This webinar will consider why good workplace design is important and what factors should be considered when designing workspaces. This seems to be particularly relevant with so many companies now instituting agile/flexible working and with the focus now turning on activity at work.
