Employee expectations of post-pandemic indoor workspaces go beyond a “return to normal” and demonstrate a desire for spaces that put people in a better place, with an eye toward spaces that are more responsive to an ever-adapting world, according to a new survey conducted by Armstrong World Industries, Inc.
The survey “Making Space for A Resilient Future” revealed six trends that point to a need, and an opportunity, to approach the design of indoor workspaces more holistically, beyond merely fixing pandemic-related health and safety concerns.
Among the findings:
- 86% of respondents expect to feel very or somewhat safe in their workspace when they return to work.
- 83% of respondents expect to feel that their workspace will be prepared and adaptable for future events such as another pandemic or the changing climate.
- 84% of respondents expect to feel that their workspace will be an environment which is supportive of the well-being of people.
