Potential for FM to improve workplace efficiency shown by latest survey

21 August 2017

Results from a recent survey show the potential for FMs to improve productivity and wellbeing levels of their colleagues and clients.

Flexibility, autonomy, consultation and happiness were listed as the most important aspects for workers to feel motivated and confident in achieving their productivity aims.

However, 42% of respondents stated that their office does not currently support a culture that allows them to work in a flexible manner, according to the latest Peldon Rose survey.

With 59% confirming that they were at their most productive within their office, 33% wished they felt more trusted to manage how and when they work.

A further 42% said their current workplace does not have a positive impact on their happiness, with 36% stating that they enjoyed coming to work.

Additional results included the response from 52% that they were not involved in planned changes to the office environment.

Regarding working away from the office, 50% felt disconnected, 33% isolated or lonely, 33% were less motivated and 27% reported feeling less productive.

Working remotely around the office was also discussed, with 79% reporting that outdoor spaces were absent, 71% had no lounge areas and 60% said breakout spaces were not included in their workplace.

The provision of additional facilities were also identified as an encouragement to spend more time in the office, identified by 66% of respondents, with 17% stating they would spend more than two hours extra per day in their workplace if these were included.

All of the above fall within the remit of many FMs, further emphasising both the positive impact that they can have and the potential of FM to be recognised as a business enabler.
