Meeting Expectations – What Employees Really Expect From Their Workplace

Our clients regularly ask us what works well in other workplaces and what they can do to create a work environment that their staff will love and where they will enjoy working.

While our response is generally that no two offices are the same, and that it all depends on staff needs, we felt that it would be a good idea to conduct a survey of UK workers to determine what employees really want (and expect) from the workplace.

To further explore how employees feel about their current workspaces, from office design to meeting norms, we partnered with YouGov to survey 1,000 UK-based office workers to examine what they really want from their workplaces, and how these opinions differ based on industry, company size, and generation.

In undertaking this research with YouGov, we were particularly keen to examine whether or not different generations of office workers held contrasting views and expected different things from the workplace, and if so, how these findings compare with common generational stereotypes i.e. are Millennial’s really as demanding as the media would have us believe?

We have also analysed the data by looking at organisation size and sector/industry and many of the results are particularly interesting and thought-provoking.
