Wellbeing, Connection and Change – Insights from a Psychologist

Three opportunities for impact emerged from MillerKnoll’s ongoing research and discussions with clients about their most pressing needs: Wellbeing, Connection and Change.

We asked Dr Sally Augustin to explore these 3 themes to understand how companies can support employee wellbeing, foster connection, and navigate change.

She will give insights from her vast experience as an environmental psychologist, helping us understand how space affects cognitive performance, behaviours and outcomes 

 (Those attending  the afternoon session in person will also be offered a tour of the new MillerKnoll London location in St John's Square, Clerkenwell)
