Designer workplaces more of a hit with men than women

Designer workplaces more of a hit with men than women
 
One in two working men value a better designed workplace than women according to new research*.
 
Researchers for the Annual Health and Wellbeing Study found that one in five men thats nearly 6.5 million workers would most value a better designed workplace to support their health and wellbeing, compared with one in ten women.
 
Once considered a fad or luxury, air conditioning is the tops according to nearly one in four workers when asked to choose what employers could most do to support their health and wellbeing.
 
Nearly as many workers (22%) valued water fountains as the most important benefit an employer could provide.
 
Nearly one in seven workers (15%) said that a staff chill out room is the best kind of employer-led support. 
 
Employee views on the physical workplace conditions in the Annual Health and Wellbeing Study echo those reported by workplace design experts and show how important the physical layout and services provided are to workplace health and wellbeing.
 
Dan Doherty, chief executive of Workplace and Employee Benefits PR experts, Cadence Market Strategy said:  We spend as much if not more of the waking day at our workplace and the physical conditions and quality of services such as air are very important to us. Understanding how employees rate the various benefits and options provides valuable insight for those responsible for the built environment and the facilities provided at work.
 
The Annual Attitudes to Healthcare Study brings together a range of research which will be released throughout each year and will culminate in an annual report with specific recommendations for employers, employees and product and service providers. Service and product providers can contribute to the study and more information can be found at www.theBestWorkplace.co.uk
