Melissa_Steach_100x100.jpgWhen we feel better, we work better. That’s one of many reasons it’s critical to consider human factors and ergonomics in workplace design. Be it your home, working co-op or a traditional business location – it is vital that the workplace take the whole human into consideration. An office that encourages movements large and small throughout the day, that allows us to initiate and regulate social interaction, and that takes into consideration factors like personal space, physical and psychological proximity, and territoriality helps us feel better. It improves our health, comfort, and connection. By providing an overview of physical, social, and cognitive ergonomics, this presentation will help participants understand, and even design if interested, workplaces that are healthier for themselves and their colleagues.

About the presenter: Melissa Steach, PhD(c), MA I-O Psychology, CEAS I

Melissa truly believes that work is a physical, cognitive, and social experience. Formally trained as a fine artist, she brings her understanding of aesthetics to the world of workplace wellbeing in her role at Herman Miller as a human factors and ergonomics specialist.

Deeply passionate about sharing the profound effect work environments have on employee experience and wellbeing, Melissa has presented on this topic at FUSE Design and Brand in London and Miami as well as at the OD Network national conference. She is also a best-selling author and recipient of the Emison Art Fellowship.

Melissa is proud to be a part of the Herman Miller legacy and commitment to the creation of cutting edge, effective, and beautiful workplace designs and environments through the use of human focused research.

With each passing day, we are continually expected to be more productive. When we don’t know the answer, we either Google it or go to the person (e.g. the thought leader) we think can give us the answer that’s contextually relevant to our situation.
 
Who do we turn to and why? Whether that person is inside or outside our organization, we expect a truthful answer we can internalize. We expect the person we turn to be authentic, transparent, and trustworthy. We expect our own personal thought leader. Shouldn’t you be that thought leader for someone else?
 
Come hear The AHA Guy Mitchell Levy, a Silicon Valley Thought Leader that’s seen and helped deploy and use technology in corporations for over a quarter of a century.

Key takeaways

Attendees will away with their own "Aha" moments while understanding why personal branding and thought leadership are essential components of today’s workforce and your long-term success.
