Focus in the Modern Work Environment

You know the problem – swarms of distractions, constant interruptions, various tones chiming all around, the overloading of mental circuits, and frequent feelings of frustration at trying to get everything done well and on time. This is the modern context in which most of us work. Many report that it is difficult to focus at work, which is leading to feelings of being unsatisfied and reduced performance. This research driven session will examine which environmental and individual factors play a role in the demands of focus work and how to facilitate it. This is an opportunity to glean insights from a review of the research of scientific literature and the results of a questionnaire completed by 255 FM professionals. 

Key Takeaways:

  • Recognise the difference in needs for focus work environments for different types of users.
  • Understand and explain the importance of environmental aspects that influence the possibility to focus.
  • Optimise the focus opportunities in your organisation based on six practical takeaways.
