The great debate highlighting the return to the workplace rages on for employees and employers alike. In the Times Raconteur special report deep-diving into The Future Workplace, our Head of Design, Stuart Finnie, expressed how businesses need to have a focus on workplace wellbeing in order to allow staff to feel comfortable in returning to the office.
“There’s more recognition now that employee mental health and wellbeing need to be a business priority – and central to this is how the physical workplace supports them.”
