ASICS is an acronym derived from the Latin phrase, Anima Sana In Corpore Sano: a sound mind in a sound body. The new ASICS America workplace reflects this statement in both design and amenities provided to employees, elite athletes and community organizations. Learn from the H.R. and marketing team how ASICS America is using their new workplace as a marketing and employee attraction tool.

Whether a workplace program is in its infancy, or mature and refined many times over there are lessons to be learned and toxic workplace practices to quarantine. It’s time to take stock of the corners we’ve cut and the assumptions we've made and regroup on best practices. As we focus on future-proofing the workplace by allowing for maximum flexibility and mobility enablement, could we be doing more harm than good in today's modern workplace?

"Hawks-Ladds isn’t the only one who walks out of work feeling like she just survived a mini Ice Age. Many workers around the nation are shivering in their swivel chairs because their offices are over-chilled during the summer months. And the deep chill can cause productivity and environmental problems."

Research shows employees lose 4% to 10% productivity when they are forced to work in temperatures below 70f or above 73f, though they tolerate being too warm vs too cold. Too hot/cold, too noisy, lack of privacy rank in the top three office complaints. This shouldn't be so hard to get right considering that a 4% decrease in productivity costs a company between $2k and $12k per employee per year!

I've seen Kay speak about corporate DNA as it relates to workplace design. She has a unique and fascinating take on why we all shouldn't try to be like Google. She outlines the 6 elements of DNA here.

It's not just a matter of flipping a switch, it takes effective and inspiring managers, the right technology, and a good understanding of individual differences.
