How to Create a Productive Workplaces: Modular Offices Give You the Best of Both Worlds

Let’s be honest.

Most people don’t enjoying coming to work. A recent Harris Interactive survey for example, found that only 45% of Americans say they are either satisfied our extremely satisfied with their jobs. Strikingly, 21% are eager to change careers.

In addition, the United States Department of Labor published statistics that suggest U.S. productivity has slowed down since the Great Recession. Then there was the Pandemic and other COVID-related events such as supply chain problems; we’re hardly back to normal, and this turbulence might be called the “new normal.”

This means that employees are doing less work for the same hours.

Employee Well-Being = Higher Productivity

The Department for Business Innovation & Skills found that employee well-being and satisfaction are highly correlated to employee performance and productivity.

For decades, nobody cared about the employee experience. The power was with the employers. All they wanted was for people to show up and work. No one was focusing on designing the workplace using modern technology, or inspiring their workers, or making sure they were happy.

However, in response to this new problem, many executives and human resources departments are now narrowing their sights on the employee experience. They contend that the employee experience is as valuable or more than customer experience for a company’s profitability.

What is the employee experience?

Employee experience includes everything from the time of a job application all the way through to the moment he or she decides to leave a company.  Some large companies have even gone as far as rewriting their job descriptions and simplifying the marketing and legal lingo in favor of clearer diction. They do this to improve experience of the employee right at the front door.

What are some other ways to improve the employee experience and increase productivity?
