The rate of change in the workplace is now faster than ever and it’s not just the physical environment that’s changing but, perhaps more importantly, the way that people interact with it. Organisations want services that make a real impact on employees’ physical and emotional wellbeing and truly connect to their strategies. The demand for more engaging workplaces is leading to constant advances in the physical environment, but it is also driving the need for more understanding about the human imprint on workplace design.
