The most important thing in the room is not the furniture, it is the people. When we consider the people in the space, we can create successful work environments. By considering the human experience at a social, physical, and cognitive level, we can begin to understand the interaction between the individual, group, and space.
When we feel better, we work better. That's one of many reasons it's critical to consider human factors in the workplace. An office that takes the whole human into consideration – an office that encourages movements large and small throughout the day, that allows us to initiate and regulate social interaction, and that takes into consideration factors like personal space, physical and psychological proximity, and territoriality – helps us feel better. It improves our health, comfort, and connection. By providing an overview of physical, social, and cognitive ergonomics, this session will help participants to create and support workplaces that are healthier for workers.
