The future workplace will look radically different as employers respond to a growing requirement for a work-health balance. The wellbeing industry is a worldwide global phenomenon, but corporates are only beginning to understand and interpret implications for the built environment. More than a ‘fad’ this is a global socio-economic shift – rue the industry that is not moving to address it.
Technology has eroded work life boundaries, whilst also empowering employees to change the nature of the work contract. Employees will
increasingly choose where they want to work and how they want to work. Technology will allow the relationship between ‘where we are’ and ‘how we are’ to be laid bare, and it will redefine how we determine the value of real estate.
Most of us work in what are essentially ‘unwell’ offices. Workplaces that are not ‘well’ impair employee performance and are at risk of heightened vacancy levels and loss of income potential. Mounting evidence all points in one
direction: wellbeing in the workplace is fast becoming a strategic imperative.
