       Topic of Discussion: Human-Centered Workplaces

People-first businesses succeed. Without people, you have no business. Advanced technology can help, but it's not the key to success. The people using the tools and making a daily impact are the heart of any good business.

What's good for people is good for business. With a human-centered design mentality, your first step is to think about the people you're designing for. Then consider the business and technical aspects. By focusing on the human aspects from the start, you make success possible for your employees.
