This is our WHY...

In the summer of 2018, our founder Joanna Watchman spent time supporting her poorly Father in a (fairly modern) UK hospital. Joanna was horrified at what she saw. The people using this space were subjected to every kind of building horror. Poor design. Awful way-finding. No natural light. Poor acoustics. Bad ventilation. No privacy.

Surely building users deserve better?

This sparked an idea. What if Jo and her team could use their collective skills to drive change? Having spent years helping her Content Coms’ clients communicate the benefits of human-centric buildings, Work in Mind was launched.

Today, it’s doing its job better that we could ever imagine. It is a global platform that connects the dots across the built environment supply-chain.

Join us to make unhealthy, unsustainable workplace buildings a thing of the past.

Better buildings for better people

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

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.

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.

Like what we do? Get involved.

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

From a standing-start, we have created an incredible network of like-minded people all over the world – with a really strong profile in USA, UK and Asia Pacific. Our little black book of connections is pretty impressive (and we are always generous with our introductions). So, it always makes sense to connect with us and see how we can explore ways to work together.

We’re told that we are awesome content marketers, speakers and facilitators. And, there’s plenty of praise for our purpose-led advocacy work across the buildings sector.

If you think we can help your organisation, we would love to talk.
