Why is it that the biggest problem with open workspaces continuously goes unsolved? Noise and distractions are the top complaints of office workers, and when people are unhappy, productivity drops. A lose-lose for individuals and the business. Not acceptable. So what if instead of trying the same old tactics to solve this noise epidemic we turn to nature for inspiration and make sound work for us, not against us. And in the process set an entirely new standard for what the open office experience should be – a place where humans thrive instead of suffer. This session addresses the basic principles of sound, the sight and sound link, the science behind natural elements, people and productivity, and technology that creates more adaptive, personalized and enjoyable workplace experiences.
