Keeping & Getting Employees — Workplace Design

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, July 11, 2018

Continental Office does — you can guess what it provides by the name — an annual study. It’s called the Workplace Choice and Flexibility Study. The study measures workplace aesthetics and design when it comes to employment. It appears the physical makeup of the workplace affects the decision of employees to hire on and to stay.

The study checked in with 262 C-level executives or associates and found:

  25% — a quarter of all applicants and workers — say that’s critical to that decision

  76% of C-level respondents say those space aesthetics are critical

  Once employed 10% of C-level execs and 11% of senior execs that the physical work space affects their decision to stay or leave


So, what do they want?

  87% want flexible settings like:


  Meeting rooms

  Private spaces

  Social areas


Continental Office CEO Ira Sharfin said the results underscore the need to create a comfortable physical workspace that takes in the need for flexibility. “To attract today’s top talent, you need to provide choice and flexibility in workplace settings. You have to give people permission not to be tethered to their desks,” he said.

There’s more:

  71% say the choice of where they sit and move throughout the day is very important or important

  21% say it is somewhat important

  76% of associates and 70% of managers say choice is very important or important when it comes to performing various functions during a workday

  55% of C-level executives feel the same
