I was recently in the audience of 2 debates organised by Philip Tidd of Gensler. The most recent was at the 100% Design Exhibition. Here is my twitter feed from that event which hopefully capture the nature of the debate.
So – feel free to add your voice to the debate, based on what you have read above?
Working to Live or Living to Work? Join us for the next Herman Miller Insight Group Debate:
Wednesday 17th October
Herman Miller National Design Centre, 61 Aldwych, London. WC2 4AE
Is it more fulfilling to find a career that you love and can commit all your energies to?
Or is it more important to discover a job that affords you a richer personal life?
You are invited to join us at the Herman Miller Insight Group debate, where the focus will
be on living to work vs. working to live. We have panellists from various walks of life –
a start-up, a big brand and other experts – all sharing their views on this thorny topic.
Will we compound the view that the most productive environments are those where people
have a single-minded passion for their work: a world in which people who live, eat and
breathe their jobs? Or will a clear need for a work-life balance become apparent?
Our carefully selected panel will span both young and experienced professionals to share
their strong and informed views on the topic. To take things a step further Insights Group
director, Mark Catchlove, will be handing over chairing duties to Herman Miller’s very own
bright young thing, Oliver Baxter.
