We spend a third of our lives at work, and the design of work and the workplace has a significant influence on our performance and well-being. As the landscape of work continues to change rapidly, and organisations compete to attract and retain top talent these issues are increasingly topical. Up to 50% of employees say they cannot focus effectively at work, with the design of the workplace influencing productivity by 20%. How will these changes influence the way organisations operate and what does the future of work look like?
