How the Physical Workspace Impacts the Employee Experience
Much of the employee experience—the perceptions your workers have for the duration of their employment with you—concerns the physical space they interact with throughout the workday. Research has shown that physical spaces influence employee satisfaction, so it’s not a surprise that organizations that want to attract and retain talent also invest in designing workspaces that employees want to work in.
This is of course complicated by the fact that many employees now work from home or balance hybrid work environments. Some employers are rethinking workspace design to entice workers back into the office, complementing home offices with spaces that prioritize social interaction. Employers that want to encourage in-office work may find themselves competing with the amenities and comforts of a home office.
