Mitigating the negative health risks associated with a sedentary life and workstyle is an issue for everyone, especially today’s knowledge workers. Designers can help shape spaces that combat inactivity and positively support workplace wellness initiatives. Workplace Well-Being: Designing for Movement focuses on the value of movement to our overall well-being and provides strategies for designing movement into the work experience – wherever that may be – at work, at home or someplace in-between. Here, we will learn how workplace design can encourage movement and how to make the case with employers to support these well-being initiatives for their occupants.
