If you or your team find working in open office spaces challenging, architects like David Dewane may have a solution for you. It’s an office space concept called the “Eudaimonia Machine” (a name inspired by a Greek term for human flourishing) that involves moving between distinct workday zones, including deep-work chambers, contemplative areas, salons, and showers to provide a “cleanse” between spaces.

Good news, though: There’s no need for a shower before diving into this week’s list of must-read articles for talent professionals. In addition to a Wall Street Journal piece about the “Eudaimonia Machine” mentioned above, National Geographic makes a case for why companies can do well in business and protect the environment, Fast Company takes a look at Gen Z’s perception of gender in the workplace, Harvard Business Review examines how companies should take into account the evolving nature of peoples’ identities as part of their D&I efforts, and The New York Times investigates how a negative company culture may have helped the decline of a well-known sportswear brand. Check out these stories and more in the list below.
