2020 The Next Work Environment Competition

Work Design Magazine announces the launch of The Next Work Environment Competition. Given the challenges that COVID-19 has placed on our health, economy, and workspaces, Work Design is searching for new and innovative ideas to create safe, productive, and comfortable work environments for the future.

The Goal

The goal of The Next Work Environment Competition is to consider options for new work environments that may be used by organizations to get people back to work quickly in safe, stress-free and productive spaces.

While this is a design competition, this is not a situation that is limited to design only. For solutions to be effective, we should consider policies, operations, technology solutions and organizational interventions. Participants are urged to consider broad aspects of the work environment for the most beneficial options.
