Business leaders are more focused than ever before on employee health and well-being — especially as they create a new balance between physical space and remote working. Air, light, furniture, plants, food, meeting spaces, and even commute quality all have a significant impact on how people and customers feel about where they work.

The report discusses the responses from the green building experts with their perspectives on the challenges facing businesses as they adjust to the sustainable — and healthy — new normal and their insights and predictions.
