The BCO, Morgan Lovell and Hatch have worked together to quantify the impact that the workplace has on employee wellbeing. We investigated working conditions, attitudes and expectations by surveying office workers. The results were analysed by sector, geography and size to reveal the transformations to culture and design that are needed to drive greater performance. This study presents the business case for getting offices right, fostering wellbeing and productivity and prioritising a healthy corporate culture. A key finding was that most UK employees believed that the design of their workplace supported their physical wellbeing.

Employee wellbeing accelerates productivity as well as benefitting the bottom line which makes it important to business. This study shows the results of a survey of almost 2000 office workers.
