HAT Collective Announces New “Happiness at Work” CEU

HAT Collective recently announced a new and timely course for commercial interior designers. "Happiness at Work" aims to educate designers on happy workplaces, and worker happiness.

June 23, 2021

What can attendees expect? 
Some of the CEU’s learning objectives include the science and psychology of happy workplaces, and how choice and control can lead to worker happiness. Notable research cited includes the fact that the physical workspace makes up 30 percent of the employee experience, and that 25 percent of employees say they do not have the proper tools to be successful in their job.  

Workers can easily adapt their personal workstation with a height-adjustable table and dividers, which assists with enhanced privacy and acoustics. Adding an ergonomic monitor arm and a mobile storage unit can offer even more flexibility, enabling workers to work their way. 


In direct alignment with the CEU, HAT Collective is introducing several new resources. This includes a new in-house   Design Services   team that can assist with space design to create productive and happy workplaces. A new Look Book, infused with inspirational quotes and imagery, can spark creative design ideas for using HAT Collective product solutions. It is available for   free download  . Other resources include an 
 online configurator tool  ; a robust   image gallery  ; newly revamped showrooms across the country; and a traveling HAT Collective “Pop-Up” Road Show, where HAT Collective representatives can meet on-site at a designer’s office location.
Ferin notes the array of virtual and in-person resources are in line with HAT Collective’s “work you way” brand ethos. “The workplace has been fundamentally changed and continues to evolve. Today, flexible solutions are the key. Designers can access these solutions in ways that work best for them – no matter where that may be.”     

A modern and functional work-from-home office comes to life through the Elle table. Electric-powered, users can select their own desired sitting or standing height. Ample surface space allows for an ergonomic monitor arm, while power and cable cords can be neatly managed and concealed.  

Why is it significant? 
“HAT Collective was launched with the belief that people are happy and more productive when they are empowered to work how and where they want – and when employers provide them the tools and resources needed for success,” said HAT Collective Vice President Libby Ferin. “This CEU brings that thinking to life. The pandemic has blurred the lines between work-from-home and the workplace. Now more than ever, employers and workers alike need happy and productive workplaces, whether that’s at an office or the home. Our CEU dives deep into how this can be accomplished. It is the first of several knowledge-based resources we’ll be delivering to the design community moving ahead.”
