A new piece of research highlights the importance of focusing on the well-being of employees to increase productivity and loyalty.
“Happiness works. Happy workers are up to 12% more productive than those that aren’t”.
and suggests that aspects such as supporting flexible working, trusting employees and encouraging openness and sharing are important for their happiness:
“The office can be anywhere … Within the next decade, 60% of office-based employees will regularly be working from home.”
“54% of employees want to be measured by their outputs.”
“Design spaces to encourage ‘bumps’ and discourage ‘interruptions’.”
