On May 11, 2017, Metropolis Magazine and Haworth hosted a discussion on A Healthy Return: The Business Case for Well-Being in the Workplace. In competition for today’s top talent, companies’ recruiting strategies are expanding beyond traditional employee benefits to include healthful and enriching lifestyle initiatives. And with the robust correlation between productivity and employee well-being increasingly evident, workplace design emerges as a potent factor in organizational strategy—attracting the best candidates and keeping employees thriving and engaged in the company’s mission. While architects and designers see this new balance between well-being and productivity as a chance to positively transform the workplace, forward-looking businesses recognize the moment as an opportunity for a healthy return.
