Christine Congdon, Editor of 360 Magazine & Director, Global Research Communications, discusses new data from the Steelcase Global Report and how leaders should create a Resilient Workplace to help employees become more engaged.
We have previously mentioned that more than one out of three of the world’s workers are disengaged, according to new data from the Steelcase Global Report. This means that the most agile and adaptive members of an organization are typically outnumbered. The good news is, the workplace can help.
After surveying over 12,000 workers in 17 countries, we found a positive correlation between employee engagement and workplace satisfaction. In short, employees who were happy with their physical work environment were more likely to be engaged.
Now that we know that the workplace can make a difference, how do leaders design spaces that help employees feel more engaged?
Steelcase believes it starts with creating a Resilient Workplace. Resilience is critical for growth and survival when facing fierce competition in uncertain economic conditions.
