The Habitability of the World: The Social Construction of the Workplace

Tuesday, 10 November, 2020 @ 6:30 AM - 7:30 AM EST

11:30 – 12:30 GMT | 12:30 – 13:30 CEST

A Sponsored Fringe Event hosted by Leading Workplace Manufacturer, Bisley (France)

In our culture, ‘corporate success’ is measured by performance indicators. And yet, none of these indicators tell us whether the organization, in its actions and very presence, contributes positively to our collective utility. Companies do bring something to the table, but to what end and to who’s benefit exactly?

Even as we raise this extremely complex question, numerous abuses are being perpetrated onto the human habitat. But why would a species hurt the very space in which it dwells?

In a time when civilization has never possessed more data on its environment, the question must be asked: why doesn’t knowledge go with care?

About the Speaker

Michaël V. Dandrieux Ph.D is a French sociologist, from the tradition of sociology of imagination (G.Bachelard, G.Durand). As a founding partner of the research consultancy Eranos, a research consultancy based in Paris and Seoul, and operating in 10 countries, he is committed to reconciling companies and society, via the means of humanities and consulting. He teaches at Sciences Po Paris (School of Management and Innovation), and serves as the executive editor of the French humanities review Les Cahiers Européens de l’Imaginaire (CNRS Editions). His work revolves around the seemingly irrational rationalities that structure life in society: myths, dreams, trust, hope.
