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. Held at the National Design Centre in Singapore, it was a unique, insightful evening that brought together leading minds from a range of disciplines: ergonomic design, workplace strategy, workplace health, interior design and interior architecture.

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.

As part of the session, Cornell University’s Professor Alan Hedge, one of the US’ foremost experts in workplace ergonomics, provided insight from his own research, and from vast experience working with some of the world’s leading organistions.

Schiavello Workplace Research Psychologist, Keti Malkoski joined a panel that further explored these topics alongside Yogesh Tadwalkar, Managing Director of Synergo Consulting, and Catherine McAllister Franzi, Group Regional Account Director of Corporate Solutions at Jones Lang LaSalle.

Thanks to all who joined us for Resilient X Workplace, and we look forward to continuing the conversation in other parts of the world in the coming weeks.
