The various lockdowns have emphasized the importance of wellness in the workplace. The anguish caused by COVID and its impact has forced entrepreneurs to think outside the traditional paths of wellness. Quality of life at work has become an issue for many companies. The offices are modernized, redecorated to satisfy the employees and allow a wellness policy. But, do the work spaces and the organization adapt to the wishes of the workers? Practices change with the new generations and the arrival of new professions. Large companies in Silicon Valley have been arguing this for several years, and even small structures are getting into it to offer solutions to their employees.
A furnished workspace
With an increasingly democratic workplace welfare policy in companies, workers have new expectations. They want to review their working conditions in order to appreciate their daily life. Environment and location are important to many of them. It is an element of everyday life. An employee dissatisfied with his workplace will find it more difficult to want to come every morning or even plan several years at the company. The work environment plays a vital role in employee morale. Between June 26 and July 10, a Sociovision survey was conducted online for Actineo among 1,200 French office workers. It represents the expectations and practices in business regarding the work environment but also the organization.
The arrival of millennials in the labor market has changed business habits. They had to adapt to this hyperconnected and collaborative generation. Despite appearances, open spaces are not very fashionable among workers. Only 29% of those surveyed are interested, but they still require the implementation of certain conditions, such as confidentiality bubbles and the presence of nearby, freely accessible meeting rooms. This is a fairly common practice in business for a matter of space and ease of organization, but working people are not big fans of this work environment. Generates concessions among all the occupants of the open space to promote a good understanding. This is an argument that drives 57% of employees to prefer an individual and closed office. But a trend is beginning to democratize, the flexible office. Employees do not have assigned offices and may work in designated spaces. And despite popular belief, this solution is not only for start-ups, large groups are also investing in spaces for nomadic employees. Engie, for example, chose to redesign its defense headquarters in 2016. Of the company’s 36 floors, 13 were designed to be open and nomadic.
Rearrange work time
People who work in the office depend heavily on their work environment for well-being reasons, but schedules also play a crucial role in the quality of life in the office. Of the total workforce, those present in the offices work an average of 33 hours, unlike the rest of the workforce, who work an average of 39 hours a week. This is an advantage and, furthermore, 60% of them declare that they stay in the office “just enough”. But this 33-hour average doesn’t apply to everyone, with 22% believing they work too much and 29% checking in to fulfill their tasks outside of the office and off-hours. To answer this problem, 55% would like to be able to adjust their work time for better well-being and regain efficiency. Some employees do not hesitate to dedicate their day to their work, which sometimes causes them to lose productivity. Therefore, companies are trying to find solutions like telecommuting to give employees the freedom to manage their day. This possibility does not have to be done all week, but offering this arrangement once or several times a month can promote well-being in the workplace.
Promote wellness to retain employees
The environment and working time continue to be points to consider for employees. Well-being is becoming a concern for most companies, but not all of them have relaxation areas or even a coffee corner. Sometimes it is difficult to modernize offices and organize them correctly to promote well-being. The problem also arises from the work time that sometimes requires adjustments. Employees in offices continue to be very numerous in each sector of activity. Of the total positions, 83% of them are permanent. Most of them stay with the company for several years, so it is important to make changes to adapt to the employees and their expectations.
Business assets have various expectations to improve well-being. The millennial generation has introduced new business practices such as the “flexible office”, although the latter convinces only two out of five employees. Depending on the employees and their habits, not all practices are good to apply, so it is necessary to evaluate the best solutions with your employees.
