 A well-designed workspace can be an essential tool to creating a company where pride in individual, team and organizational accomplishments, along with camaraderie and a feeling of belonging among employees can flourish. Such workplaces can also provide enhanced opportunities for collaboration and directly contribute to fostering innovation and creativity.

In this online seminar, Leslie Caccamese, Communications Director at Great Place to Work® Institute, will be joined by Barbara Armstrong, a Principal and Workplace Experience Strategist at Kahler Slater, an interdisciplinary design firm and six-time Best Company to Work for winner. Together, they will explore what it means to be a friendly workplace and how the actual, physical workspace can hinder or abet positive interactions among employees.
