5 Workplace Design Technologies Transforming Employee Experience

5 Workplace Design Technologies Transforming Employee Experience

Employee experience is about more than just reducing turnover. In fact, according to Glassdoor, organizations that invest the most heavily in employee experience outperform the overall market, beating the return on the S&P 500 by as much as 122% between 2009 and 2014.

Though, at first thought, the responsibility of EX may fall on the shoulders of HR and corporate leadership teams, office design leaders certainly play a pivotal role in shaping employee experience from the very first prospective employees walk into the office for their interview until the day they leave. A high tech, fully connected office space not only communicates to employees that your company values innovation and  is willing to invest in solutions that increase employee satisfaction, but can also enable employees to work smarter, faster and more collaboratively.

For these companies, it’s no longer about simply improving productivity through automation or increased connectivity but delivering awe-inspiring, one-of-a-kind employee “super-experiences” that no other company can replicate.

With all this in mind, we took a look at 5 “super-experience” enabling technologies ushering in a new, experience-centric era of commercial real estate and workplace design.
