Paperworld 2018 is all set to provide new insights into the ‘Future Office’ putting an emphasis on the aspects of health and safety in the workspace.
The second edition of this show in Hall 3.0, which celebrated its successful debut in 2017, will concern itself with health. From 27 to 30 January 2018, the ‘Future Office’ will be all about the well-being and health of office staff. With this as its emphasis, the leading international trade fair for paper, office supplies and stationery in Frankfurt am Main will be spotlighting a hot topic for the sector and its future, as far as offices are concerned.
A healthy, safe workplace with opportunities for personalisation of design and for being able to withdraw to a quiet space are crucially important if motivation and productivity of the staff are to be maintained. That is why companies are increasingly investing in the promotion and management of health. What that might look like in reality and what possibilities exist for creating a ‘healthy’ working environment are all things that visitors to the trade fair can expect to find out, first hand, at Paperworld.
“The German Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health has established that employees take around 15 days a year off sick – and this figure is increasing annually. It is an area where companies need to act. I am pleased that we shall be laying emphasis on this important topic of health in the ‘Future Office’ special show at the up-coming Paperworld, and shall be presenting some suggestions for solutions. There will certainly be lots of new discoveries for visitors, be it in the special show itself or in the specialist lectures and guided tours,” said Michael Reichhold, Director of Paperworld.
