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.
