The Next Space @ ORGATEC – The Empathetic Workplace

In today’s reality, work can happen in any place at any time. As the line between workspaces and non-workspaces has become increasingly blurred, the impact on the design of offices, homes and third places has been immense. One thing is certain: the future of work is employee-centric. How can employers attract and retain talent, empower people to work more effectively, inspire creativity and foster collaboration? How can design and technology shape amazing, truly inclusive experiences? How are employers addressing the health and wellbeing of workers? These pressing questions will be examined at the third edition of The Next Space, taking place on 26 October at Orgatec, Cologne, as we explore the theme of ‘The Empathetic Workplace’. Together with IBA, Frame will host an interactive event with talks, workshops, tours and more to investigate the future of employee-centric work from every angle.
