Our latest research on the U.S. workplace highlights that the office still has an important role to play in the future of work, but how we curate experiences and facilitate spaces to get work done effectively needs a critical re-evaluation. We surveyed more than 2,000 U.S. office workers to understand what is and isn’t working in the office currently, and what design interventions might create a more compelling destination for employees to work in. Our workplace data reflects that workers still value the office as a place to focus on their get their work, but they are looking for a more diverse spectrum of spaces and experiences to better support their work and create a place where they want to be.
This anonymous, panel-based survey of more than 2,000 U.S. office workers was conducted online between June 14 and August 7, 2022. Respondents excluded workers who had not yet returned to the office since the start of the pandemic. At the time of data collection, respondents were required to be working in the office at least some of the time. Respondents were distributed across 10 industries and represented a broad cross-section of demographics including education, commuting distances, and geographical location across the U.S.
