Wellbeing in the workplace is one of the biggest challenges currently facing UK business.

A much banded about term, wellness is fast becoming one of the most talked about subjects in the design and management of workplaces. Survey after survey proves a link between looking after a workforce well and their productivity and a company’s consequent profitability. No surprises there. (According to a recent study conducted by mental health charity, Mind, FTSE 100 companies that prioritise employee engagement and wellbeing outperform the rest of the FTSE 100 by 10 per cent.) But surveys also show that designers and managers have to get wellness right for it to have any impact. Getting it wrong can be a costly waste of time and money and could even cause stress to employees.

A key focus for Bruceshaw, their recent move to a new workplace in Southwark incorporated an employee focused design and layout to ensure the best possible space for its inhabitants to flourish.

On the 12th July 2018 Bruceshaw will be hosting a ‘How to make Wellness Work’ discussion with a panel of 5 prominent experts to discuss the issue.
