Changing Workplace Design

What is it?

Experts predict that within a few years more than 1.3 billion people will work virtually, and only 30-40 percent of employees with assigned spaces will actually utilise them. With an increased dependence on technology in all aspects of work, world leading organisations are exploring alternative workplaces.

Why is it important?

Workplace design is now recognised as crucial to ensuring staff and students are healthy, engaged and performing at their best. As such, workplace design is now being considered equally alongside the design and construction of buildings.

What to do next?

We should continue to evolve our workspaces, moving to more agile designs in order to increase employee satisfaction and retention. We should also work embed culture as part of these workplace transformations so as to create a healthy and engaged workforce.
