Among the many changes society has experienced in the past month, the relationship between work and how we experience physical space is one of the biggest. What will the workplace of the future look like when the dust settles?

Tarkett, an innovative and sustainable flooring company, will host two free virtual CEU courses examining this question with the goal of providing insights for personal development, connectivity and a potential blueprint for a happier, more productive workplace.

The free online course, “Altered States,” is an examination of five cultural drivers and how they will influence the human condition, interpersonal relationships, and our use of space. Those cultural shifts include:

  • Technology and the Happiness Paradox: The pursuit of happiness is actually making us less happy.
  • The Reputation Economy: In our climate of fake news and political dissonance, we search for brands and employers that align with our personal values.
  • The Diversity of One: A new approach to diversity, equity and inclusion encourages us to consider the unique contributions of every individual, beyond our visible differences.
  • Spatial Economics: Advances in transportation and connectivity are allowing individuals to live further from city centers.
  • Design for Deconstruction: Building for the future means more than just environmental effort, but actually how we build the dwellings where we live and work.

Attendees are eligible for credits through both AIA and IDCEC.

“Altered States” will be offered on the following dates and times:
