A modern office environment is an increasingly important aspect when deciding to accept a job. 86% of respondents in a recent survey by the ABSL Association consider it important for offices to have enough light, place for team and individual work, space for relaxation, preparation of lunch and even networking with colleagues. Companies in the field of business services consider cultivation of the work environment to be one of the priorities that will help them recruit new employees. “The fact that employees now consider the work environment to be important is also confirmed by additional findings from our survey, realised in cooperation with the JLL and Skanska companies, these being that 73% of job applicants would like to see their workplace before signing the employment contract,“ says Jonathan Appleton, director of the ABSL Association. The importance of an attractive work environment was also confirmed by a survey by the Randstad personnel agency. In this survey, the appearance of the office ranked third on the scale of aspects according to which employees from Central Europe decide whether to accept a job.
The SAP Services Company is a company that considers the work environment to be one of its priorities. This company was awarded the ABSL Diamonds 2017 award in the Innovative work environment category for the project for its new offices. “I appreciate the final result of the winning project, in the form of a unique and effective working environment, where a healthy lifestyle, ecology and leisure activities all have space, and also the fact that the company’s employees were also involved in its realisation,” Jonathan Appleton commented.
