Join Haworth Connect for a panel presentation featuring Cheryl Durst, Marta Wassenaar, and William Kerr, as they share their thoughts on leading, managing, and being productive in the unknown; the future of the office; and the gift of global talent as we set our sights on a successful 2022.

Well-being is a basic, fundamental state that encompasses our physical, cognitive, and emotional health.

Plastics are embedded in the lives of billions around the world—but at what cost? Over the years, plastic waste has accumulated in landfills and oceans—wreaking havoc on our various intertwined ecosystems. Finding ways to upcycle our waste can transform discarded plastic from environmental hazard to new and different useful products. With an eye for new advancements, Camira Fabrics, a long-time partner with Haworth, brought us Oceanic, the latest in a series of recycled yarn developments constructed from ocean waste. Through the SEAQUAL Initiative, marine debris is transformed into a new type of raw material known as Upcycled Marine Plastic and converted to SEAQUAL® YARN, bringing to life possibilities for textile use in a multitude of applications.
As we emerge from 2020, we understand the world of work has changed. New realities are driving us to envision the office of the future based on societal shifts. To adapt to this evolution of work, three important factors will influence the workplace: access to people and information, our work behaviors, and spaces to support people’s needs. For many of us it is not about the tasks or activities, but where and how those activities get done. Haworth’s Work from Anywhere approach demonstrates the ecosystem and solutions for our evolving work landscapes. The future office will be at the hub of this ecosystem. In this presentation we will share some fundamental themes and how office workspaces will evolve to support these themes.
What is the key to good hospitality? It is an understanding of our needs and habits—how we move and how we evolve.

The hotel provides an exclusive hospitality experience for Haworth’s clients, offering guests, students, and community members spaces to work, meet, relax, and restore.
