Soininen and colleagues thoroughly investigated the repercussions of having green walls in Finnish offices.
It’s great when there’re resources (time, money, and otherwise) to thoroughly deal with all of the sensory issues that might arise in a workplace—but that’s often not the case. Neuroscience research can guide you to highest priority actions.
Spaces for learning need to be carefully designed and managed—our brains perform much better in some places that others and our tired heads need opportunities to refresh if they’re going to continue to develop knowledge and skills. Applying what neuroscientists have learned about design-learning connections makes “lessons” more productive and positive experiences more likely.
Sirolo and team investigated how moving from private offices to an activity-based workplace influences work environment satisfaction one year after the move.
Yildirim and colleagues set out to learn more about how design influences user assessments of workplaces.

There's been much talk about workplace design as people return to work in corporate offices. A lot of neuroscience research has been thoughtfully applied over time to make those offices more likely to elevate wellbeing as well as performance. Let users know how you’ve put research to work in their offices by sharing the information in this article.
