Herman Miller’s research team sought to understand the other side of workplace design: individual work. As organisations emphasise collaboration through the design of their spaces, the needs of the individual worker are becoming under-served.

Through research into individual work, they have identified five of the most common states of mind users seek to cultivate when accomplishing individual work. For each state of mind, Mark will outline user needs and design opportunities for satisfying those states of mind.

The Workplace Trends autumn conference brings together ideas at the forefront of workplace thinking in a collegiate and convivial atmosphere.

The theme is The Office as a Desired Destination. Is it? What can organisation and the workplace industries do to make it more desirable?

The hybrid event (in person and virtual) brings together leading practice, reasearch and innovation, and is highly recommended to get you thinking about the ways forward for Smart Working and workplace excellence.
