Would you agree that these are some of the top challenges large corporations face today?
- Attracting skilled knowledge workers
- Declining productivity due to workforce health problems
- The skyrocketing cost of providing healthcare benefits
These challenges are motivating companies to address wellbeing in the workplace with wellness programs and even workplace design.
Recent CBRE research presented at the CoreNet Global Summit revealed that more than half of surveyed companies already provided programs to address workforce health, and 91% expect to increase health and wellness programs in the years to come. Many are turning to active design guidelines to improve health and wellbeing in the workplace.
Active design is a philosophy that was originally developed to improve public health by building city infrastructures to encourage more activity. However, active design is becoming a global movement that is also driving the design of the modern workplace.
