Intelligent workplace with space for humanity

Robots book meetings and alert you when your stress level is too high. Sensors regulate heat and light. Artificial intelligence (AI) is taking the place of employees as problem solvers in offices. And the Internet of Things (IoT) is increasingly taking care of service, operations and maintenance. With a perpetual incitement to perform, thousands of things in your head and a high level of stress, it feels like the hours of the working…

Co-working hub that believes in a mix of people

A successful hotel is a meeting place where foreign tourists and business travellers mingle with local residents. Where pleasure-seekers in the bar are mixed with entrepreneurs en route from the hotel’s coworking hub. This is the conception of Eva Kalling Hansson, CEO of Strand Hotel in Stockholm, who believes in mixing people as much as possible. ”This is the place where conversation starts”. This is Eva Kalling Hansson’s motto for Radisson Blu Strand Hotel:…

The future of meetings

Meetings are something everyone has experienced and all companies and organisations hold lots of meetings. To ensure that those…

Meetings – a growing part of working life

Our work time is increasingly devoted to meetings. White-collar professionals spend more than half of their time in meetings. This will only increase when our working lives become more project based and easier jobs are automated. We will also have more virtual meetings, which will place different demands on meeting places. Today’s working life is full of meetings: planning meetings, progress meetings, department meetings, performance reviews... “I don’t have time to work, because I’m…

Well, beauty and harmony trigger endorphins, lower the pulse rate and blood pressure, calm us down and produce a sense of wellbeing. This is demonstrated within the area of brain research called neuroaesthetics. Office researchers have also concluded that aesthetically pleasing offices increase our well-being and make us more positive towards the organisation. The book, “Neurodesign – Inredning för hälsa, prestation och välmående” (“Neurodesign –…

Mingling in the working life

Short standing meetings, virtual meetings, networking meetings … there aren’t just more meetings, there are also a larger variety of meeting types.  Although the number of meetings has increased overall in the workplace, the meeting culture varies depending on the type of business, size of the organisation, and other factors. Standardized practices such as Lean and other efficiency and quality methods have obviously had a great impact, as well as the agile methods that…
