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.

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.
