Sustainable workplace design, new educational facilities and an interview with dwp's Jorge Ortega
Q1 – 2022
How can we make better workplaces for people and what does sustainable design mean for workplaces?
by Adriana Graur and Neil Carter dwp | design worldwide partnership
A sustainable workplace is only possible through a holistic approach to well-being and the natural environment and this requires design input. For most people, today’s work environment isn’t defined by physical walls, however buildings can play a role in people’s health, and well-being has never been more essential. Sustainable workplaces are characterised by healthy habits, sense of community and increased employee productivity by creating a safe, happy and diverse environment.
