20 Aug Workplace Design and Employee Engagement
Gallup’s latest State of the American Workplace study found that 70% of U.S. employees are not engaged. That’s a high percentage! What can you do to improve employee engagement?
Besides identifying more career development opportunities and recognizing employees’ work regularly, workplace design is a less recognized but important factor in facilitating employee engagement.
An effective and inspiring workplace can facilitate collaboration, promote social learning, and accidental interactions that could spark innovative solutions. I curated several articles on how workplace design impacts employee engagement. These articles show case companies such as Google, Pixar, Skype, Deloitte, and creative office designs in Japan, Slovenia, and Spain.
Do you work in an inspiring workplace or a drab-looking office? What is your observation about employee engagement at your company relative to their workplace?
