We’re on a mission

Work in Mind is the first knowledge platform dedicated to the connection between healthy buildings and workplace wellbeing.

Launched in 2018 by Content Coms, a purpose-driven content consultancy specialising in the built environment, Work in Mind establishes a space for a growing community who share a belief that positive change and better, healthier buildings are possible.

Our purpose is to change the way the whole supply chain – from architects & specifiers through to landlords and end user employers – think about the impact of buildings on the people that use them. Our view is that more holistic, human-centric approaches to design, interior specification, and building management can have truly positive impacts on the way we work, live and learn.

Healthy Buildings + wellbeing + ESG

Work in Mind gives a voice to the growing band of folk who care about the connection between people and the built environment.

We are a trusted resource reaching over 60,000 people a year, in over 200 countries. And, the amazing thing is, we are 100% funded and supported by our founders Content Coms, and resourced by their awesome team of specialist content professionals.

What gives us credibility (or, so our readers tell is) is that we’re really strict about the sort of content we publish. No salesy puff. No promos. No keyword stuffing. Just authoritative, thoughtful and informative news, research and intel from the people (and organisations) you want to hear from. Drop us a line if you’ve got something to say and want to get involved.

Let’s share our ‘why’…

In the summer of 2018, our founder Joanna Watchman spent time supporting her poorly Father in a major UK hospital. Joanna was horrified at what she saw. The people using this space were subjected to every kind of building horror. No natural light. Poor acoustics. Bad ventilation. No privacy. For the patients, their relatives and the people who were there all the time – the doctors, nurses and auxiliary staff – this was not an easy place to work. Surely they deserved better?

Jo realised that she could use her comms skills to drive positive change in the built environment.

Having spent years helping her Content Coms’ clients communicate the benefits of human-centric buildings, Joanna and her team launched Work in Mind as a dedicated knowledge platform for all those who share this passion.

Let’s use Work in Mind to make change happen. Together.
