What Work-Life Balance Means Today

Nick Magoto

BY Nick Magoto /

The concept of “work-life balance” is changing. We used to think of it as simply making sure we spent as much time doing things outside of work, called “life”, as we did at work. However, the concept is now shifting to incorporate “life” as part of the work day. Workplace environments today are designing places and spaces that facilitate positive associate and client experiences, and blending fun into the environment itself to help foster productivity and creativity.

What is Biophilic Design?

Continental Office

BY Continental Office /

Continental Office

BY Continental Office /

Many jobs today require us to sit for prolonged periods of time. Science tells us that sitting all day isn’t the healthiest choice when it comes to doing our work, but sometimes it's inevitable.
