Findings from Gensler’s 2016 U.S. Workplace Survey
An Interactive General Session
The nature of work and the places in which work happens are both facing significant—and potentially volatile—paradigm shifts. Workforce engagement is at the lowest levels since 1978, employee engagement is stagnant and workplace stress is on the rise. The latest global workplace research indicates that the workplace itself is not maximizing employee engagement and innovation, and in fact creating inequity among workers. Given the shifting global landscape of work today and in the future, how can organizations across industries and geographies harness and even accelerate the pace of innovation that is so vital to success?
Janet Pogue McLaurin, a principal at Gensler, will share critical insights on how and where work is happening today, how effectively the workplace supports that work, and how workplace interventions can be made immediately to directly impact overall employee experience, all based on Gensler’s Workplace Survey research findings. This data is based upon on surveys from over 9,200 office workers in the U.S., U.K., Asia and LatAm. The presentation will address key findings as well as cultural similarities and differences.
