In the words of Amy King, co-founder of Dallas-based workspace Good Coworking, wellness is “front and centre” of the business ecosystem’s consciousness right now.
Americans, on average, spend 90% of their time in the built environment, and these environments are always conducive to wellness. The GWA’s first webinar of 2022 explored ‘Wellness Design In The Flex Office Space’.
Three experts – Amy King, Simee Adhikari and Sarah Travers – unpicked why it’s so important to let member wellness drive office design.
As Adhikari, co-founder of The Ring Workspaces explains, our sensory system evolved in the natural world, so we’re designed to be around sunlight, plants and water. Workspaces that aren’t built with this in mind can impede our ability to function well.
