Are our workspaces really supporting our needs?
Sam Sahni, Senior Associate and Workplace Consultant at Morgan Lovell

Technological advancements have rocketed in the past 20 years, but what about the physical workspace? With a rise in the mobility of the workforce within a rapidly changing context, we are witnessing the need for the workplace to be more dynamic and activity driven. But are we approaching the design of our workspace in a way that supports this? Sam will share his insight into what is changing and why; providing the science behind how our approach to workspace needs to change.
