New survey by office solutions supplier Fellowes Brands outlines the impact that workspace satisfaction has on employees' happiness and productivity levels

Still working from your kitchen table? Well you’re not alone! 

Fellowes Satisfaction - Infographic - UKA new survey by office solutions supplier Fellowes Brands has revealed that more than half of us are still working from kitchens, living rooms, and bedrooms, rather than from a home office.

Whether working from home or the office, 89% of employees rate satisfaction in their workspace as important, with a third saying they are up to 50% more productive when they are satisfied with their workspace.

The survey also reveals that the majority of employees expect employers to provide them with the correct equipment for working from home, with 81% saying that having a good ergonomic environment, including a suitable desk, chair, and monitor at eye level is important to their productivity.

In terms of overall productivity, it’s a pretty even split with 32% of people saying that working from home is more productive, 36% saying that they are more productive in the office and 30% who believe a hybrid arrangement makes them productive.

“The future of work is hybrid. No longer is working solely relegated to the company office; the modern workspace now involves employees splitting a portion of their time working from within the corporate office, and a portion working from the home office. Throughout my career working with some of the world’s biggest companies, one thing I’ve come to notice is that the most productive people all seem to have one commonality: satisfaction. To successfully transition to this exciting hybrid working future, employers must implement practical strategies that allow their employees to be satisfied with the setup within the corporate office, as well as within their home working environment. Employees who are well equipped and thus satisfied with their working conditions in both locations will lead to outcomes of higher productivity.”

Fellowes Brands UK Marketing Manager, Jeremy Cooper adds: “The modern workspace is rapidly evolving, and with that comes a change in the tools that employees need to be successful and productive in their work. As employers begin to design new hybrid ways of working, ensuring that employers outfit their employees for both corporate and home office working will be key."

And as you’d expect, hybrid working is going to be high on the agenda of our upcoming Work: In Progress event - we’d love it if you could join us!
