Webinar: Another day NOT at the office: How to design thriving workspaces for work and home

April 29 @ 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM AEST

Proudly brought to you in partnership with The Safe Step

Without doubt COVID has accelerated the future of work, resulting in a seismic shift in how and where we work.

As we mark one year since the WHO declared the global pandemic, it’s fair to say hybrid working is here to stay.

As organisations continue to transition employees back to the physical workplace, a high percentage of workers continue (and want) to work from home in some capacity. So, what does this mean from a workspace design perspective?

Which is why we’re pleased to be partnering with The Safe Step for this upcoming free webinar with special guests Melissa Marsden, COMMUNiTI and Dr Libby Sander, Bond University.

In this interactive discussion, drawing on the extensive research and on-the-ground insights of our expert panelists we’ll delve into:

  • what employee wellbeing needs we should consider in designing workspaces, regardless of location
  • how to entice employees back to the office and for what purpose
  • why some workplaces are still reluctant to embrace a more flexible way of working (“but it worked so well before!”)
  • what practical things front-line, field-based and SMEs groups can do
  • the correlation between investment in the working environment and an organisation’s bottom line

But most importantly, the session will leave you with practical frameworks, tips and resources on HOW to create thriving workspaces that bring out the best in your people.
