Wellbeing is now an important part of contemporary business practice and our survey offers a snapshot of how the creative industries are responding to demands for more flexible working and a better understanding of the work/life balance.
In our report, we detail the results of our extensive survey and then hear from British Land’s Mike Wiseman and Matt Webster about how creative companies have been leading the way in the development of this area since the early 2000s.
We also feature highlights from the wellbeing roundtable we hosted earlier this year, with input from a range of companies from Framestore to DentsuAegis on how they ensure wellbeing is a part of their creative work, day-to-day.
One relatively new area that has shown significant impact on wellbeing is ‘biophilic’ design and we look at some of the work Oliver Heath has been doing to bring nature into the workplace.
Then we also examining the importance of establishing a good office culture – and how the workplace environment can act as a foundation for this. In this last feature we hear from Helen Andrews, MD at agency Wieden + Kennedy London and Lee Schuneman from Microsoft Lift.
As you’ll see from the survey and the findings in the wider report, the design of our working environment can directly benefit both our levels of creativity and our happiness in the workplace.
