COVID-19 will not only change the way we work, it will change how we interact with people and physical objects. Over the past 2 years HOK has been researching neurodiversity in the workplace and how organizations need to rethink their space to be more inclusive, helping an increasingly neurodiverse workforce thrive. This is especially relevant now, as there is a direct connection between our research into the needs of neurodivergents and their heightened sensitivities to stimulation and what many people are experiencing as a result of COVID-19. Join us as we explore how to help neurodivergents and neurotypicals thrive in the spaces they occupy.
