One in five workplaces fails to meet employee needs, according to research by employee experience specialist Leesman.
A report called The Workplace Experience Revolution part 2 is the culmination of Leesman's nine-year analysis across 557,959 employee responses in 3,932 workplaces worldwide.
The findings are drawn from 346 spaces that have been measured by Leesman in the post-occupancy phase after a workplace relocation or refurbishment.
This group, which comprises 84,158 individual employee responses, provided Leesman with an opportunity to investigate where workplace change projects succeed or fail.
The report indicates that 66.5 per cent of respondents in new workplaces agree that their workplace enables them to work productively.
But in reverse, this means that one in three respondents cannot agree that their new workplace allows them to be productive.
Workplace change projects generally succeed in collaborative areas such as bringing people together and supporting interaction, according to the report.
