Affordances are the characteristics of objects and space that encourage behavior. Haworth's Global Design & Innovation teams have identified 10 core affordances vital to human performance in any workspace. When applied effectively, they help create the conditions that allow people to do their best work, enhance the workplace experience, and support each employees well-being.

Course Objectives:
• Explain the 3 emotional affordances (affinity, authenticity and well-being) and describe how their role in the workplace plays in helping to create a positive atmosphere
• Explain the 3 physical affordances (anthropometrics, ambients and movement) and describe their role in the workplace as it relates to supporting physical comfort and health
• Explain the 4 cognitive affordances (access, insulation, externalizing and embedding) and show how the workplace can help us think
• Explain the concept of affordance and how it relates to the physical workplace
