The way we work is constantly changing. Organizations need to evolve with the times and find new strategies, tools, and approaches to sustain and increase business performance. In doing so, a huge focus has been placed on employee engagement, and a ton of research has been invested in learning how the physical design of the workplace can harness and communicate a company’s culture and brand values—as well as increase performance and financial benefits.
Disengagement in the workplace can cause a toxic environment. The long-term effects can impact client interaction and collaborative performance in a negative fashion. However, there is an opportunity for leaders to revitalize or spark performance by viewing the workplace as a tool to generate positive company culture to engage employees properly.
