Knowledge Worker Productivity and The Living Office

Tues 12th May 15 - 8.00 am

Herman Miller / AWA Event

In the knowledge economy, getting the best performance from every person on the payroll is increasingly mission critical.

But what is known about Knowledge Worker Productivity? How do we create the conditions in which knowledge workers can thrive? What’s the science on the topic? How can the design and manage to give Knowledge Workers their best chance of delivering a world class performance every day?

We’ll be addressing all these questions at our Breakfast Briefing on the 12th of May.

Our Speakers:

The 6 Factors of Knowledge Worker Productivity and what it means for the Workplace -  Andrew Mawson, MD and founding Director and AWA (Advanced Workplace Associates) one of the UK’s leading independent Workplace Change Consultancies will be revealing the findings of their 2014 Knowledge Worker Productivity research study undertaken in partnership with the Centre of Evidence Based Management.

AWA’s team reviewed over 800 papers to answer two key questions: What is known about the measurement of Knowledge Worker Productivity?; and what is known about the factors that are associated with Knowledge Worker Productivity?; The research identified 6 key factors than are proven to make a difference to the productivity of knowledge workers.

The Living Office – Oliver Baxter, Insight Programme Manager at Herman Miller will be introducing their NEW view on the landscape of work.

In businesses around the world the workforce is changing. The expectations of workers are changing. How work gets done is changing. The tools of work are changing. The work itself is changing. There is a new landscape of work. At Herman Miller, we are working with the world’s leading thinkers and designers to apply a greater understanding of people—how we think, how we are motivated, and how we create and collaborate—to this new landscape of work. In this seminar we will share our approach to how to manage our work, the tools and technologies that enable us, and the places where we come together to do it.
