At Active, we love to learn and stay ahead of the latest trends and research in workplace design. That's why last week, we sent our marketing coordinator, Stéphane Boucaud to a seminar led by the Herman Miller Insight Group.
From the seminar entitled 'Cognitive Wellbeing in the Office' led by Lillian Antonio, Herman Miller's in-house ergonomist, Stéphane shares his top takeaways:
Ergonomics is an essential part of
workspace design. After all, if a space is designed without its users in mind, its
unlikely to result in an efficient and productive environment. It is important to note
that ergonomics is more than just designing workplaces, systems and products that work
specifically for the human body. Physical, cognitive and social factors all play a part
in influencing ergonomic design in an effort to bring out the best in employees.
Relating to concentration, productivity and engagement,cognitive wellbeing should be considered high on the agenda when designing an office.
