    Wellworking Wellbeing Series - Elina Grigoriou And The Philosophy Of Wellbeing

    Wellworking Wellbeing Series - Elina Grigoriou And The Philosophy Of Wellbeing

    Elina Grigorou is the author of a fantastic new book called Wellbeing in Interiors: Philosophy, Design & Value in Practice. The book looks not only at the ways organisations can use design to address the wellbeing of individuals, but also the impact this approach has on them as individuals in terms of their creativity and productivity. This in turn can have a transformative impact on the organisations for which they work.

    Crucially the book also looks at the philosophical underpinnings of wellbeing as well as the hardwired physical and psychological characteristics of people that mean many of the things we know about wellbeing have been apparent for hundreds or even thousands of years.

    In this episode, Elina is in conversation with Mark Eltringham in the first of a series of Wellbeing Matters podcasts in partnership with Wellworking. The idea for the series came about because of a debate that took place in 2018 and hosted by Wellworking featuring several of the people who have taken part in this series. What became apparent during that discussion was that while wellbeing is one of the most talked about workplace issues it is also one of the most complex, nuanced and yet misunderstood. This series aims to consider the facets of that issue in a sophisticated, informed and provocative way.
