8 Indisputable Reasons Why We Don't Need Offices

8 Indisputable Reasons Why We Don't Need Offices | Staff Engagement and Productivity | Scoop.it
Looking back a decade or so ago it was absolutely essential to have an office, or more likely, a cubicle. That's where we had meetings, saw our coworkers, and just got work done. But today do we really need corporate offices?

Jane Sleeth's curator insight, October 7, 2013 3:26 PM

I love how designers who are trying to get their names and reputations out there keep talking about the need for more and more open offices/workstations and the ability for people to work from home. The fact is there are still thousands of jobs which require access to co-workers, clients and or require periods of concentrated and quiet effort. This catch all review of offices of the future are not based  on the realities of the nature of work in NA or the need for the human brain to interact with others at times and then have quiet private time to work. Sure wish Ergonomists/Human Factors Design experts were part of this conversation.  JESleeth OPC

Gallup's Workplace Jedi On How To Fix Our Employee Engagement Problem

Gallup's Workplace Jedi On How To Fix Our Employee Engagement Problem | Staff Engagement and Productivity | Scoop.it

Leadership in America is failing.

 

That’s the only reasonable conclusion to be drawn from Gallup’s “State of the American Workplace” report being released this month.

 

Over the past year, Gallup researchers interviewed nearly 150,000 workers--people in all states and industries--and discovered that a stunning number are miserable in their jobs. More specifically, only 30% of the nation’s working population today admits to being fully engaged at work. While Gallup encouragingly notes that there’s been a slight improvement to engagement since the Great Recession, it’s hard to cheer when you realize 52% of Americans admit to being disengaged in their jobs, and another 18% to being actively disengaged.

More than half of America's workforce is disengaged. It would be interesting to see data for other countries too.
