HR Committee: Office Design for the New World of Work
Beanbags, table tennis, slides, and standing desks. We’ve all heard about the cool features of high-tech offices. But what are the real trends and the real needs of workers these days? And what tips and tricks can we apply, even if we don’t have a blue-chip budget? Join us for a review of office design trends and a discussion with an HR practitioner whose company refreshed their workplace. You will walk away with some ideas you can apply, no matter the size of your organization.
