[NC017 CEU]

In light of the current health crisis we will examine the inherent challenges designers face when dealing with five generations in the workforce to provide choices of where, how, when and with whom they work to enhance user experience and performance. In this panel discussion, our experts will present generational similarities and differences. From that perspective we will consider post-Covid generational expectations for the workplace, from dedicated and shared individual workspaces; formal and informal meeting spaces; and community spaces and quiet spaces. With the added emphasis on physical and psychological safety and security. [INTERMEDIATE][OF][PD]
