  • Employees value an emotional connection to their organization. Great workplace environments and the experiences they provide are a key instrument in enabling and supporting this connection.
  • Employees place more value on physical elements that support well-being and convenience—such as natural light, views of the outdoors and food—more than service amenities like fitness centers and on-site child care.
  • To fully optimize workplace investment, it’s important to proactively consider what will improve both employee satisfaction and engagement.
