Events / Masterclass: Rethinking work environments for the new normal

Rethinking design of international work environments for the new normal



About the Masterclass 

In this masterclass by teacher Andres Erbe from IE Business School, you will learn about things you could consider to design the most optimal work environment in these current turbulent times. Food for thought you can use to make changes in your workspace, that of your department or for your company.


“Things aren’t going back to the way they were. Now, more than ever, we are on a steep learning curve, most obviously so in terms of an accelerating digital transformation. It is, however, beginning to dawn on us that change doesn’t stop there.  One of the most overlooked levers of organisational transformation are our spaces. Virtual, physical and mental spaces. As leaders we need to reflect on what our role is in creating these spaces.”


Illustrating his points with examples from his work, Andreas Erbe will explore how we might rethink our work environments, so they create sustainable value, send the messages we want, make us feel good and help us be more agile and productive.


During and after the masterclass there will be room for questions.


The masterclass is organised by IE Business School and will be held in English.
