Scientific study of workplace design and employee experience launched

08 July 2016

A new research project, Workplace experiences: the science series, has been launched by Interserve to examine the science behind the design of more effective workplaces.

Working in partnership with Advanced Workplace Associates, this will see Interserve create a number of reports over the next two years to examine workplace design and employee experiences.

The initiative is designed to review academic research into the design and delivery of positive experiences by the consumer sector, with the aim of applying this in a commercial context.

This will provide the basis for the two companies to deliver a suite of practical tools and methodologies for businesses looking to improve their working environments.

Interserve managing director - commercial Jeff Flanagan said: "Our industry is increasingly recognising the critical role that the workplace plays in employee motivation and engagement.

"We need to have the right tools in place if we're to develop this understanding further and drive real change."

He referred to the Stoddard Review providing "an important first step in the debate" by examining links between workplaces and "organisational productivity".

"Our research will expand this by looking more forensically at the relationship between the workplace experience experience and individual employee performance.

"More importantly, it will provide practical, commercial support for business," said Mr Flanagan.

The first white paper outlining the project, Defining, understanding and applying the science behind effective workplace experiences, can be viewed online
