The Economic Impact of Art & Design in the Workplace

July 14 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm

The office is being disrupted; in response we need disruptive design. We’ll use
new research from sociology and psychology to examine the failings of existing
office spaces, multi-year surveys that highlight users’ needs and frustrations, and examine flexible space concepts as a solution. We’ll consider what the Well
Building Institute says about art and its effects on experience of spaces. We’ll
also use case studies to show the economic impact that justifies making art a
priority in workplace design. Attendees will gain new ideas for workplace design
and, importantly, a new way of talking about the value of their services.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Evaluate economic impacts of design using case studies and new research in
    workplace design
  2. Identify deficiencies of existing open office design as they relate to the formation of
    healthy and productive environments
  3. Analyze the effects of art and design in the workplace on comfort, satisfaction and
  4. Describe forces behind the accelerating trend towards flexible spaces, the design
    goals in their formation, and the impact on users and business operations
