IWFM Midlands - How we work: Understanding the workplace (RIBA approved)

A look at workplace trends, behaviour, and how technology is changing the way we work.

Join us for a RIBA-approved CPD event.

As part of IWFM's committment to their members, we have come together with Adrian Campbell, Head of Workplace Design form Senator Group, to deliver this RIBA-approved CPD event (Royal Institute of British Architects), which is delivered to architects and interior designers and we now wish to share with the facilities management industry. Giving you a unique insight as to how understanding the workplace can help deliver design that not only looks good, but assists in productivity, wellbeing and creativity.

Our CPD is classed as fitting the following RIBA’s core curriculum subject, Designing and building it: design, construction, technology and engineering.

An overview

This seminar will give you:

- a look at workplace trends, behaviour, and how technology is changing the way we work.

- essential learning points the provider wishes to make

- evidence-based analysis of workplace behaviour

This event is based on original primary research we undertook on a working population of 2,000, surveying the workplace practice of individuals. We took ONS statistics on population distribution of office workers, which interestingly gives the London a lower weighting that one might expect (16%). We are conscious that there is a great deal of top level workplace analysis which is in danger of being overly theoretical and catering for stereotypes that may not necessarily represent the real practices of the larger proportion of the population. We believe what we have done here is not just new, but also original and hopefully will be interesting to you and your team."
