June 5, 2020
The partial return to the physical world of work means that the print edition of the June 2020 issue of IN Magazine is now being mailed out. It has been available for a couple of weeks as a digital edition and it’s full of great stuff on the work topics that matter more than ever. We would say that but you can judge for yourself.
Highlights include Kate Usher in conversation with Sally Gunnell on the challenges facing women in the second phase of their lives, Toby Benzecry mapping organisational culture on to the physical and digital workplace, Debra Hill’s exploration of the stellar installation of Nordea’s Control Centre in Warsaw, Peter Löffler on the way digital twin technology will transform the way we design, construct and occupy buildings, Giuseppe Boscherini on the role of personality in working culture, Ian Ellison rediscovering a building that was ramshackle but a great place to work, our series of podcasts on wellbeing and a wry look at the intrusion of Zoom and similar tools into our homes.
There’s also plenty of video and audio linked in the stories.
A full list of contents from this issue of IN Magazine is below. If you don’t already you can subscribe for future issues and regular news here.
