What’s your workplace why?

A leader’s guide to the post-pandemic people and place debate

The landscape is still fluid

The pandemic has changed the corporate workplace landscape forever, forcing organisations to make structural decisions on their people and place strategies while the great work from home experiment is still in motion and far from over. This is riddled with risk. But amongst it is also immense opportunity. Leaders must ask themselves: do you have the right information to hand to adapt to this landscape?

Between a rock and a hard place

Media threats of an imminent ‘great resignation’ suggest location flexibility will be a critical component in talent strategies. So, do you mandate employees return to your workplaces as soon as it is safe to do so, or do you leave them remote? They have proven they can work effectively from home, so why should they concede to instructions to come back when the average home supports the average employee, better than the average office?

Experience is critical

The evidence is conclusive. Employees who have a great experience in corporate workplaces, want to get back to them for the majority of the working week. But those who have a poor experience are better off at home. This will upend your business’ historic operational and financial justifications for workplace and mean your existing workplace supply chains will need radically remodelling.

Working in isolation

Building a flexible work and place system will rely on deploying new processes that can bend and adjust with the needs of a more fluid approach to where your workforce is based. This will also rely on you knowing exactly what role all your workplaces and workplace systems play in connecting your employees with each other and with your corporate purpose.

A leader’s guide

The pandemic has proven that, for millions of employees, work no longer needs to be confined to corporate offices. This publication, Why Workplace, will help executive leadership teams answer the fundamental question: why have corporate offices?

In a narrative journey through the largest research dataset of its kind, we highlight the three simple, but critical, investigations leaders must undertake to create a secure foundation for their post-pandemic ‘work and place’ decision making. We explore the potential for immediate and significant cost savings, while dramatically increasing the attractiveness of corporate workplaces for those who want and need them.

It is time to put what we’ve learned into practice. Your organisation needs to know how to curate new environments that are fit for employees – the next step is to identify where on the hybrid working scale they fit best.

Organisations of all sizes need tools that are predictive and in tune with the world as it is today. Leesman’s Insights and Research team have translated our insights into a method of assessing how many employees currently working from home would in fact benefit from an office environment, and why.
