How offices reopen is as much a question as when for many organizations. In our third episode of BWBR Design Thinking Series: The Future of Workplace, Pete Smith, FAIA; Melanie Baumhover, AIA, LEED AP; and Scott Holmes, RA, ACHA, LEED AP bring their individual expertise in leadership, health care, and mental health design to discuss how offices can draw upon the elements of a Human-Centered Safety® approach to create a welcoming, comfortable, and supportive environment for workers’ physical and mental wellbeing. From strategies to control infection spread to design that alleviates anxieties and stress, the three spotlight how a focus on the needs of the whole person will be how the whole office comes back together successfully.
