Kicking our Workstation Habit to Improve Brain Health

Mar 12, 2024

10:00am – 11:00am CT

Our workplaces enable multitasking and it’s taking a toll on our health. Research shows that multitasking impairs brain health, 43% of employees multitask frequently and 60% are dissatisfied with their control of their work environment. Flex work employees say they do different types of work best at home vs. the office. What keeps us from applying that thinking within our offices? Our workstation habit. We’ve got to start asking WHAT we need to do before deciding WHERE best to do it. Join us to learn how kicking the habit will lead to better brain health and renewed purpose for the office.
