The workplace is where most people spend the majority of their time. How they respond to that environment has a significant impact on their productivity, job satisfaction and well-being. Get it right and people’s jobs are easier, more satisfying and more effective. A company that gets it wrong, will struggle to attract and retain the best talent.
The stakes are high but the idea of considering how employees work best when designing a workspace is a relatively new one. For a long time, it seemed as if companies expected employees to be at their best regardless of their environment, instead of creating a workspace that made success more likely.
In this report we examine the state of the current workspace, identify trends that are changing our working environments, consider the issues surrounding meeting management and look at the rise of agile working.
