If you’re a business leader who seeks to improve your ability to attract and retain top talent, take a look at how your workspaces are set up. Creating a workspace that caters to elements of individual employees helps foster better company loyalty. Employees now seek offices that may have the following traits:
- Flexibility and alternative places to work
- Multi-department interaction
- Private spaces to hold meetings and discussions
- Lounge areas for dining, relaxation, meditation
- Recreational and office amenities
There are plenty of reports, and studies such as Gensler’s Workplace Index, The Leesman Index, and others that explore the relationship between the physical space and employee performance and retention.

Some companies may also opt for workspaces rich with supplementary services such as printing, fitness rooms, or daycares, to aid employees and help with overall productivity so they stay happy and excited about working at your company.
