Employees increasingly look for a job that is tailored to their lives, rather than having to adapt their lives to their work.
Our Work in Progress report, which looked at what workers from different generations across the UK wanted from the workplace, found a significant generational shift in employee preferences.
Both employers and office space developers need to take note of how employees’ preferences change as they get older. For example 35% of 30-45 year olds want the ability to work remotely, compared with 23% of employees in their 20s – many of whom favour the ability to socialise at work.
