It turns out the old real estate saying about the three most valuable qualities of a property may not be true for modern workplaces.
For employers wanting to attract today’s multigenerational employees, the mantra might now be design, flexibility and light.
This discovery comes from the results of Capital One’s 2018 Work Environment Survey, which asked 3,500 full-time office professionals across the U.S. to share their thoughts about the impact of workplace design and employee experience on their satisfaction, creativity and productivity at work.
Here are three of the survey results I found most interesting. In a future post I will share additional observations.
- All generations care about workplace design.
The survey found that two in three employees (66%) say that workplace design is as important, or more important, than workplace location. Perhaps not surprisingly given their exposure from a young age to media images online, Millennials valued design the most of any generation, with 42 percent saying workplace design is very important, compared to 34 percent of Gen Xers and 32 percent of Baby Boomers.
