“Progress in evidence based workplace management” 

Chris Payne and David Reynolds join Wim Pullen, Director of the Center for People and Buildings, in Delft, Netherlands, on June 10, 2015, just after his live Session 4 of World FM Day, 2015, entitled “Progress in evidence based workplace management.”
“What do we know?” and “How do we translate knowledge into well informed decisions?” are the two questions giving rise to evidence based workplace management. The workplace arena is filled with opinions and anecdotal evidence, but big questions like “how does the workplace contribute to productivity growth?” or “Can we enhance employee health and well being in new workplace?” are easy to ask but hard to answer. Nevertheless workplace researchers are eager to develop reliable knowledge that helps to discuss such questions and inform decisions. What is the state of the art and science of knowledge development? What does the future hold?
This is a rich, provocative interview, building toward the end, when Wim takes the making of cost cutting decisions.
