The Impact of the Physical Environment on Well-Being

Date October 10, 2017
Location Cushman & Wakefield
Time 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Please join us on Tuesday 10 October for a CREW UK networking event and panel discussion, “The Impact of the Physical Environment on Well-Being”. 

As the importance of Diversity & Inclusion moves up the corporate agenda in every sector, for the first time we are openly discussing mental and physical well-being and the importance of the physical environment in attracting and retaining talent and ensuring a productive workforce. How can property professionals deliver working environments which help people thrive?

Event takeaways:

  1. Our future places of “work” will not look and feel the same as they do today. The requirements of work will become more output based, with technology changing the boundaries between work/life and the choices of where, how and when to work, will become more important.
  2. Property should be treated as an asset and not just a cost! Employees are already considering the wellbeing facilities being offered when deciding which company to work for, and this is a fundamental, global socio-economic shift in thinking.
  3. Lead from the top. Get ahead of the curve and ensure that your real estate truly reflects the culture of your company and remember that health is the new wealth.
