Capital One’s Work Environment Survey— carried out by Wakefield Research— was recently released, showing that office configuration and format holds a whole lot of weight for the American worker: when the time comes for a new job, 71% of millennial respondents thought that “workplace design and environment” was just as or more significant than where the office is geographically.
According to the research, these were among the things people wanted the most when it comes to their workplaces: 62% said natural light, 43% said furniture and areas that are “reconfigurable” in a pinch, and 44% wanted to see “creative imagery” and art.
Confused about what these young people want? Here are the top three items this group listed “when asked to prioritize on-site benefits:” 33% said fitness and health centers and initiatives, 36% said areas to gather and decompress, and 39% craved food and drinks that were good for them.
Employers, take note: people are actually paying attention to office layout— whether or not a potential hire likes your space might even have an impact whether or not they join your company.
