Creating work settings that promote wellness is not only the right thing to do; it’s also a key decision criterion for recruiting and retaining top talent amid the Great Resignation. But how do we know if our workspace is healthy when “workspace” can mean a commercial building, a nook at home, or anywhere in between? Session leaders introduce the latest science on healthy buildings and the sensing devices that are helping organizations and individuals adjust their workspaces for greater well-being. They delve into environmental controls such as noise, lighting, temperature, and humidity and the effects they have on human performance and well-being in space plans, and they set out practical actions participants and their organizations can take to improve EQ and well-being across their work settings.
