It won’t surprise companies that employees list cleanliness, comfort, lighting and air quality as basic requirements for decent office space. However it is the next set of factors that reveals most about productivity and worker wellbeing.
Respondents in the Savill’s What Workers Want survey listed a selection of essentials for their ideal work space. These included a need for a quiet space for focused work, break out spaces, good internal design, office plant features and flower arrangements. They believe these are the things they want to see if employers are to get the best out of them.
In fact, if design is right both inside and outside, 63% of workers said they would be more productive. So, how can companies make changes that will transform their space? Importantly, will they be easy to maintain as well?
