In the early phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, we reached out to clients through our Workplace Transformation Survey to gain insights into what the future workplace may look like across a spectrum of industries in a post-pandemic world. We published Getting Back to Business – A Workplace Transformation Guidebook to share what we learned and explore the many factors to consider when returning to the workplace. Many respondents in this survey were surprised by their organizations’ continued effectiveness with employees working remotely. And they expected to maintain some of this new-found flexibility in the future.
Recently we followed up with the BlueSky Quiz™ to gain insights into how the work-from-home experience might impact employee expectations of a future workplace and how that might differ from their pre-pandemic offices. The BlueSky Quiz assesses perceived corporate culture, the current office profile, personal workstyles, attitudes, and expectations about changes for the future. Its algorithm scores users’ responses to produce a possible future workplace profile for each individual who takes the quiz. Results range from traditional private office-centric plans to a future-forward workplace with no assigned desking.
The BlueSky Executive Summary details our findings and reveals some surprising results.
