Designing Workplace Experiences
Wednesday, 14 November, 2018 @ 08:00 - 10:00 UTC| £32
Organisations are becoming obsessed with recruiting, retaining and motivating top talent. Over the last two years, in partnership with Interserve, AWA has carried out a dedicated programme of research, exploring ‘Designing and Managing Workplace Experiences’, to demystify the subject and find out how to apply the best science available to achieve the best experience for the workforce.
Join AWA for breakfast, as they reveal the findings of the study and outline a new process for strategic design and effective workplace management.
The session will tackle the following topics:
- Workplace Experiences: What we’re trying to achieve
- The truth about experiences and the brain
- Designing consumer experiences and what we can take to workplace experience design
- A process for designing Workplace Experiences
The session will be a particularly valuable (and enjoyable!) workshop for leaders in Real Estate, FM, Workplace, HR & IT (occupiers only) taking an advanced approach to the creation and management of the modern workplace.
Tickets are priced at £32 per person, available below – all proceeds donated to BBC Children in Need.

Since founding AWA over 25 years ago, Andrew has worked at strategic level with many organisations including Merrill Lynch, RBS, Network Rail, Santander, Unicef UK, Welcome Break, Willis Towers Watson, The Home Office and The Cabinet Office to support them in improving the performance of their workplace portfolios.
Over the last 2 years Andrew had led AWA’s research into the design and management of ‘workplace experiences’ on behalf of Interserve, the UK FM company. The research built on AWA’s existing research base on Knowledge Worker Productivity and captured learnings from academic research on designing consumer ‘experiences’ along with case studies from the consumer world.
