Impact of home work settings
We’ve consistently found that employees’ home settings – whether a dedicated work room or area – are the strongest indicator of their experience of working remotely. Without an understanding of this fundamental information, you’ll find it impossible to instruct your future workplace strategy.
Leesman data shows that employees who used dedicated offices reported the best home working experience, while those working in areas not intended for work report the worst.Not only should you know how supported your employees are when working from home, it is essential that you also understand how this compares to that same employee’s experience in the office.
Our research also found that for those who work from a dedicated room at home, the home provides a better experience than the office, while those who worked in non-work specific areas at home, such as a sofa, had a better experience in the office overall. Without this knowledge, it will become exceedingly difficult to accurately inform your office and home working strategy.
