A new report from Mace shows that almost three quarters of office occupiers expect to alter their workplace design over the next two years in an effort to improve the employee experience.
The findings came from data using a global client workplace survey issued by Mace to over 4,000 commercial real estate professionals.
According to the report, 60% of respondents said employee experience has become their top priority. Even more, 62% of respondents said that they have readjusted their workplace strategies due to the pandemic.
Because of this emphasis on employee experience, almost 60% of respondents said they would be making changes to their workplace design over the next 12 to 24 months.
“The data tells us that our corporate real estate clients are working to improve the employee experience in a bid to attract their employees back into the office,” said Ross Abbate, CEO of Mace’s Operate Division. “We have witnessed how much value the workplace brings for businesses and have experienced instances where employees have reassessed how much time they spend remote working after being back in the office. The data from this survey will support how we work with our clients to deliver shared outcomes and help shape new ways of working.”
