Join the Workplace Evolutionaries’ session at IFMAWW15 on Seven Things You Could be Getting Wrong with Angie Earlywine.

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.

"Hawks-Ladds isn’t the only one who walks out of work feeling like she just survived a mini Ice Age.

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 really believe that unfortunately, the interior design and architectural practices are quickly becoming a commodity. And it’s unfortunate because of their amazing value. ...But, design firms are still struggling for how they can be compensated, and everybody wants everything so fast that nobody’s letting people do the research."
