Workplace strategy is a hot topic of late, as well it should be. Office culture has changed radically in recent years, the impact of which can not be understated. As one recent JLL report revealed, engaged employees can improve a company’s bottom line through increased customer satisfaction and enhanced productivity. In fact, one workplace study shows that more than 70% of workers would settle for slightly less pay but a better work environment.
Whatever your industry, staying competitive hinges on having a well-designed, people-friendly workplace that encourages real productivity and collaboration, promotes health and happiness, and helps you attract and retain top talent.
At our JLL headquarters in Chicago, we are in the process of addressing this need for change, undertaking a massive renovation encompassing more than 200,000 square feet across 6 floors, and impacting nearly 1,500 employees. In doing so, we’ve decided to give you a behind-the-scenes look at the transformation and share best practices you can use for your own current or future workplace revitalization.
