#WorkTrends Recap: The Future of Work: Purpose, Productivity and Experience

#WorkTrends Recap: The Future of Work: Purpose, Productivity and Experience

The future of work is here. More specifically, the future of our workplaces is here. Companies are realizing the value of focusing on the environment for their employees. Creating a more human-centered workplace has a lasting impact on employees, the company, and the bottom-line as a whole.

A place of work is a living environment that helps individuals and businesses craft and experience a rewarding fusion of life and work.  An embedded experience is a primary differentiator whenever individuals engage with an organization and it should play a core role within every company – both strategically and operationally.

This week on #WorkTrends host Meghan M. Biro welcomed Michael Jordan, Leader of the JLL People & Process consulting practice, to discuss why the workplace is more than a property or building.

Here are a few key points that Michael shared:

  • Employee demographics can have a lot to do with how companies decide workplace style and corporate real estate portfolio
  • 47% of workers said that being able to concentrate is the top priority in the workplace, but they still need to be able to collaborate
  • Your experience with the workplace starts way before you get to the office
