    Companies are investing in ways to measure the effect of workplace design on employee happiness. Why? There seems to be a strong correlation between employee happiness, productivity, and talent retention. So let’s explore how, specifically, the workplace itself contributes to attracting, cultivating and keeping happy employees.

    This webinar will evaluate the influence of good design in the workplace, identify the 10 specific areas in which design can make a difference to employees’ wellbeing, and count the ways to measure employee happiness. You will be able to apply your new knowledge and skills to your next workplace design project, and achieve great results!
