Interview with Leigh Stringer: The Issues We Face Returning To Work

Bob Fox chats with competition juror, author, and Managing Principal at EYP, Leigh Stringer, about the issues we will face when returning to work.

The main reason for creating the Next Work Environment Competition is to go beyond our traditional ways of thinking as designers which is exactly what juror and workplace practitioner, Leigh Stringer does in her work with EYP. As a best-selling author and leader in our industry, Bob asks Leigh to share what issues we should pay attention to as we return to work. One thing that Leigh and her HR team are looking at are changes to guidelines from organizations such as the CDC, OSHA, WHO, etc. With the world constantly changing, it can be challenging to keep up with the new standards and their intent as designers.
