We worked with research institute Ipsos to understand the impact of work location on employee engagement. Findings from this study highlight seven key strategies for improving engagement and engagement satisfaction at work to:

  1. Offer a variety of job opportunities: Knowledge has changed our way of working sustainably. Phases of deep concentration alternate with lively exchanges between colleagues. It is difficult for these different tasks to have the same workplace available. However, employees have the control over where and how they work and the corresponding work environment is available, the more committed and satisfied they are.
  2. Promote cooperation: The increasing globalization and the international division of labor present completely new challenges for distributed teams. The office is increasingly becoming a place where people get together and should therefore enable employees to work together in an informal and lively manner. This applies both to employees at the same location and to global teams working across borders on joint projects.
  3. Allow concentration and privacy: eMails, the phone or colleagues - any change in the work environment distracts us. The flood of information that streams in daily overwhelms us. Employees therefore need the ability to regulate the level of privacy themselves and retreat areas that support focused and focused work.
  4. Creating areas for social and informal meetings: Everyone knows the saying "First work, then pleasure". However, social exchange and informal conversations promote the relationship between colleagues and the company. A positive side effect: engagement and satisfaction are improved. The Steelcase and Ipsos global report shows that 95 percent of employees who are very committed and satisfied have the opportunity to socialize with colleagues. Therefore, there should not only be classic jobs, but also areas for social and informal meetings.
  5. To ensure exercise: Movement promotes thought processes - this is known, but is still too rarely implemented. The brain works most effectively when the employee can choose between different work environments depending on the type of task. It is not just about changing the workplace, but also the change between sitting and walking, working while standing at a lectern or in action on a flipchart, in a closed room and outdoors contribute to a better ability to concentrate.
  6. Leave freedoms: According to our latest study, 25 percent of German employees do not feel affiliated with their business, while just under a third (28 percent) say they have no way to bring their ideas into the company. However, we know that space shapes behavior. Therefore, employees need work environments in which they can feel the brand and the corporate culture as well as the freedom to express and contribute their own ideas and values.
  7. Cultivate Welcome Culture: Not only the colleagues at the location, but also mobile employees, visitors and guests should feel welcome in the company. Workspaces are therefore important in which mobile employees can work and network with colleagues.
