The New Business of Healthy Buildings– The Future is Now for Safe, Flexible and Smart Office Space
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, HR professionals were teaming with their real estate counterparts and leadership teams to begin increasing the focus on how the office influences the health and productivity of the occupants inside them. The pandemic has accelerated what may have been a 10-year healthy building movement into a rapid two-year undertaking.
In this session we will share new research that demonstrates the impact that buildings have on well-being, such as cognitive function, sleep, and mental health. The research will explore people’s concerns with returning to the office, the challenges with working at home, and the strategies that will restore confidence in the office environment. Through interactive demos, we will introduce the office of the future: one that is safe for employees, flexible to changing work habits, and smart for collaborative and creative work.
