The Humanity of Workplace Experience Design
From Disney to Electrolux, leading organizations are using insights from neuroscience to manage workspaces that are more stimulating, collaborative, and supportive of employee well-being. This approach has been shown to boost employee engagement, creativity, and productivity. Dr. Augustin will discuss the latest research on how neuroscience can be used to shape more human-centered workplaces.
