What is your workplace strategy?
80% of employees want flexibility in where they work – What is your workplace strategy?
While building camaraderie is among the top reasons why non-executives want to spend time in the office, it’s dead last for the C-suite, at just 12%, meaning non-executives value building camaraderie at more than twice the rate of executives. Executives, on the other hand, undervalue camaraderie and overvalue facetime and in-person meetings. This disconnect suggests that executives could be overlooking the need to make it easier for employees to collaborate and connect—in both physical and digital workspaces.
Future Forum Pulse
Future Forum is a consortium focused on building a way of working that is flexible, inclusive, and connected. We conduct research and convene executives to design a people-centered and digital-first workplace. Since June 2020, Future Forum has conducted quarterly surveys of workers and managers across the globe, asking them a series of questions related to the employee experience, including about productivity, sense of belonging, and preferred ways of working.
This report summarizes the findings of the Fall 2022 Future Forum Pulse, a survey of 10,766 workers across the U.S., Australia, France, Germany, Japan, and the U.K., conducted from August 3–21, 2022.
