This report, authored by William Cowell de Gruchy of Infogrid and published on February 9, 2022, is a follow-up to Infogrid’s previous Healthy Buildings Report. The importance of a healthy workplace has never been more prevalent, with 63 percent of employees saying that they are more concerned about it today than they were before the pandemic. This report analyses the results of a survey of 2000 employees on their thoughts around hybrid working and returning to the office. Some of the themes addressed are: the impacts of different modes of work on employee mental health; how the workplace can increase employee productivity; what employees expect from their employers as they return to work; and how employers can increase employee retention and attraction.
