On-demand recording: how can we humanise the workplace?

The impact of the workplace on our health and wellbeing has been a theme drawing the attention of office occupiers, owners and workers alike in recent years. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought many of these discussions into sharp focus and could signal a step-change in workplace strategies.

Across many regions, workers who would normally be based in an office for all or a significant part of their working week, now find themselves working from home. This has brought with it new pressures and challenges, particularly around the blurring of work and home life. How can we find the right balance?

For those workers who can find more time to spend with family, to exercise and to relax, the current situation may drive certain positive outcomes, which in turn could contribute to better results while working.

How can we make the most of this unique opportunity to explore how home working affects wellbeing and performance? And how can employers translate these learnings into future workplace strategies that deliver more flexibility and give more emphasis to wellbeing?

During this 30 minute on-demand recording, we are joined by two innovative thinkers with insights from the worlds of sports science and neuroscience, who will look to address these pressing issues.

Listen to discover:

  • How to set up an effective home working environment
  • Insights into the cognitive and wellbeing impacts of home working
  • How to use data to drive your workplace wellbeing strategy
  • Whether we are any closer to a formula for productivity
  • How COVID-19 could reshape workplace strategies
