There's no doubt about it, the workplace is changing. Things that were once commonplace in the office have been completely eradicated, and your workforce is expecting to spend their time in an office that keeps up with the movement. IoT and technology have completely changed the way we interact with our coworkers, and our customers. The companies that chose to ignore these changes may be left behind. So, what's in and what's out in the modern workplace? Our infographic will help you there.
Work is no longer about confining employees to one space that they deem the best for everyone, or about long manager-led meetings that soak up precious time. It is no longer about offering a draining work environment, that leaves employees miserable and burnt out. The workplace and the workforce's expectations have changed - and those that don't adapt may find their employees taking their talents to greater and greener pastures.
Confined workspaces and a one-generation approach to our working lives is no longer accepted. Company culture has become such an integral part of why employees choose to accept job offers, and less emphasis is put on salary and the previously coveted corner office. Employees want control over their environment and their time, which is much better for the productivity and retention rate of the business as well.
Workplace managers should consider evaluating their space to determine if it really is "in or out" in the workforce's eyes. A few changes can completely transform the way your workforce interacts with your building, and each other. Take a look at our latest infographic to identify where your own facility could stand to make some improvements.
