AWA: The Science of Workplace and Change
Tuesday, 19 June, 2018 @ 18:00 - 20:00 UTC-5| Free
Everyone’s talking about the Workplace Experience, but what does it really mean? Where’s the science to guide us? How do we use workplace change as a tool to shift to ways of working that achieve ‘elite’ levels of human performance?!!!!!
At the Advanced Workplace Associates (AWA) Fringe Event we’ll be exploring these themes and more through a fun and interactive format facilitated by the AWA team hosted at WorkHouse, one of New York’s coolest co-working places.
Facilitated by AWA’s Marita Schardt and Fran Ferrone the event will whisk you through AWA’s latest workplace science from its partnership with the Centre for Evidence Based Management. And AWA’s Founder, Andrew Mawson will host an interactive session exploring how this new knowledge can be practically applied to the design and management of workplace experience.
Come to the event and you will never see the workplace quite the same way again.
