Factors for an Optimal Workplace Experience
Set A Clear Vision
Be clear about your vision for change and how you think that change will be beneficial for your business. This may involve supporting new ways of working or shifting the way work gets done in the organization.
Enable Your People
Fundamental to the idea of creating workplaces that attract people is understanding the people themselves. Go beyond generations, and work to understand both the work patterns and life stages of your people so you can appropriately tailor work experience to their needs.
Meet Basic Needs
Great workplaces start with the foundational elements we all need to be productive at work: convenient access to a wide variety of spaces that enable different work patterns and preferences, seamless technology, support of wellbeing, and the ability to easily find information and access other people.
Create A Destination
Work can and will happen everywhere. Flexibility and choice are highly prized by employees. However, bringing people together is key to driving more collaborative cultures. We believe the two need not be mutually exclusive. By making the office a highly functional, delightful place to get work done, employers can offer flexibility but also ensure that the office is a place people choose to be.
Focus On Details
Research shows real economic benefit to caring for your employees, namely in the form of attraction and retention of top talent, amplified by increased loyalty, wellbeing and engagement. Investing in turnkey, flexible opportunities translates to employees feeling that they are valued and the work they do is important.

CBRE’s Workplace team has been brilliant to work with. Tiffany (Workplace Director) has been a thought leader for me and a valued and trusted advisor and strategist. We would not have achieved the success of our program without this partnership.
Susan Leach, Cisco Systems
CM Program Manager
The results were overwhelmingly positive. Not only did we achieve what we set out to do, but with CBRE’s support we were able to create an environment that is aligned with our vision and values. Our new workplace is innovative, inspiring and energetic and employee satisfaction with the work environment has nearly doubled while we have been able to reduce our space allocation by nearly 50%.
