The Empathic Office Building: How healthy offices take care of you in the Future

Happy employees are more productive, creative, resilient and suffer less from burnout. As we move toward greater wellbeing, is it enough to avoid stress in the work place or should we increase happiness by stimulating behavior? A solution lays in creating empathetic office buildings that consider the state of being of its user and provide an environment that best matches their needs, stimulating human interaction, nudging and sensing as well as active building interaction. This session will focus on research at Delft University of Technology on stress and happiness and its relation with modern workplaces.
