We invite you to visit and explore a unique interior where agile working is brought to life in an exciting and informative way. Employees choose where they work based on the task in hand. A diverse collection of settings designed for the needs of today’s mobile, flexible workforce supports a new, inspiring and efficient environment for business.
Developed from Professor Jeremy Myerson’s thought-provoking “New Demographics, New Workspace” study - exploring how the needs of the ageing workforce and the changing nature of work itself are making new demands on the design of working environments – this seminar will explain the thinking behind and the journey to creating a workplace fit for today’s business needs.
Jeremy Myerson is the Helen Hamlyn Professor of Design at the Royal College of Art in London; a leading academic and activist in the field; and the author of many books on design, business and society.

Employers and workplace designers may lack important information about the people who occupy the working environments they create and manage. This lack has the potential to waste resources, reduce competitiveness, and to increase operating costs. This brief but ground-breaking presentation identifies the “missing” information, explains how it is obtained, and suggests how its use can lead to more effective workplaces and healthy, inspired employees.
The presenter is Robert Stuthridge Ph.D., CPE, a social scientist and human factors specialist who has recently published his doctoral research investigating work design process errors. Dr. Stuthridge has worked in the human factors field for more than 20 years, and owns ergonomics consultancies both in the UK and USA.
