Humans are wired to follow the path of least resistance. If one doesn’t have to do something, he or she will not do it. Technology has enabled humans to work from coffee shops and from home, reducing the need to go to work. The very meaning of work has changed for modern day workers where the workplace is no more a physical space. The new workplace is a blended space of the physical and the digital.
The subconscious mind is like cruise control for humans and shapes behavior. The environment that one is in conditions the mind. At work, the workplace environment conditions quality of thinking. For organizations in a collaboration economy today, productivity depends on the quality of thinking, and not so much on efficiency. The blended workplace is the starting point of innovation for organizations that believe in being distinctly different.
Author Parthajeet Sarma delves into psychology, human evolution and science to draw connections with greatly changed expectations from work. In his third book, Parthajeet espouses the need for management to get out of codified theories. This facilitates a macro view, leading to a radical new meaning of work, workers and workplaces that is aligned with the organization’s vision for the future.
There will be a workshop inspired in the change in the workplace. By 2020, millennials will occupy 50% of workplaces, many of them in decision making positions. The physical & digital form of workplaces has to reflect the needs and aspirations of a generation which has grown up in a digital age. Organisations have to make a fundamental shift within their workplaces, as millennials no more ‘need to come to work’. Godrej Interio and iDream present a first of its kind workshop series in India, to sensitize organisations and professionals on this fundamental shift; as well as to demonstrate tried and tested techniques to do so. This is a ‘thinking with hands’, highly interactive workshop.

Shown below are snippets from a few.
