May 18, 2022: Finding a workplace that fosters well-being and happiness is one of the key aspects of being productive. HNI India celebrated its core philosophy revolving around the concept of happier workspaces with UNWORK - a workspace design series emphasising on changing dynamics of a workspace ecosystem and on workspace wellbeing - #workhappy.

UNWORK’s first event was held on May 18, 2022, at HNI Design Centre, Bengaluru, and featured engaging panel discussions amongst well known architects, designers, and corporate real estate leaders. HNI, the brand that brought these brilliant minds together, is one of the leading office furniture manufacturers in the world, headquartered in Iowa, USA.

The event was attended by various corporate real estate leaders who discussed their thoughts & experiences in three separate panel discussions. The Corporate Real Estate (CRE) professionals on the first panel included Sonia Pimenta, Santosh K, Dhanya Menon Krisna, Payal Sandhu Khurana, Aruna and Naseera Razak who talked about combining flexibility in workplace design. Second panel consisted of Jayram Govandiah, Diwakar Chintala, Sonali Gupta and Vijaya Prasad Bhargav all providing extremely acute and prudent advice on workplace economics in a post-covid world. Third panel had distinctive figures like Fancy George, Shashidhar Sharma, Nirbhik Bera, Abironi and Saikrishna – all discerning their challenges & rewards with a holistic approach to workplace wellbeing.

Additionally, a podcast was recorded between Karan Sachdev, Managing Director HNI Office India and Sabina Reddy, Director, M Moser Associates, Bangalore during the event. Sabina discussed her journey and expressed her insights on how organisations are adapting to the new hybrid model. They also discussed how collaborative and social workspaces are taking more prominence in the contemporary workspace ecosystem and what the future of workplaces holds post-pandemic, amongst other things.

“HNI is a global brand that provides workplace furnishings for premium office spaces, and we work closely with the corporate real estate fraternity worldwide. We keep engaging with industry leaders by providing platforms for such thought leadership sessions. We are excited to be hosting these very insightful discussions that have a lot of takeaways from the CRE perspective.” says Mr. Karan Sachdev.
