Hosted in Sydney and Melbourne on March 31 & April 1, over 250 guests including key architects, designers, executives, workplace strategists and media, joined Malkoski and Vischer for a series of discussions on transformational workspace psychology.

Published by Schiavello in Australia, this book explains why workplace change management, and ‘Co-creation’ with employee participation, is an imperative component of a new workspace outcome. Highlighting numerous real-life examples of how companies and employers have made the ‘right’ workspace decisions, this book invites workspace users — employees and teams — to participate in the process by using their feedback constructively to help create innovative and thoughtful designs that meet employees’ needs and support their work.


On Friday 27 June, Schiavello and Humanscale presented Resilient X Workplace, a discussion forum designed to address the many ways in which the modern workplace environment can be ergonomically designed to promote resilience and foster health.

The event focused on three key areas: Ergonomic Design – how ergonomic design can support new ways of working to promote physical and psychological health; Needs of multi-generational workers – how this relates to designing workplaces and new ways of working; and Employee health – how current empirical research on workplace ergonomic design factors can promote resilience and foster health in the workplace.
