How we research

Our access to research findings from global workplace studies gives us insights into the latest workplace trends and issues that organisations are experiencing across the world. We share the research findings with our customers, so you can relate to your workplace issues and understand how your workplace can be designed to; positively influence behaviours, instigate culture change and increase wellbeing and engagement levels.

Our partnership with Steelcase gives us access to extensive secondary research findings from independent research bodies such as Gallup, Harvard, Ipsos and leading Universities.

Steelcase continually invest heavily in research and development, and have partnered with leading organisations to conduct more detailed primary research into current workplace issues and trends. The latest being a study into ‘Engagement and the Global Workforce’.

Other current workplace trends include:

The Privacy Crisis – Although workplaces today make it seemingly easy for people to collaborate, most leaders remain dissatisfied with the pace and frequency of breakthroughs.

Wellbeing: a bottom line issue – Worker wellbeing is a hot topic and extends beyond measures of personal satisfaction or fulfilment.

Making Distance Disappear – For teams that collaborate across locations, video conferencing means new ways of working.

Think Better -how thoughtfully designed workplaces can help workers better manage their attention and think better at work.

We also conduct bespoke research with our customers as part of our consultancy service; in the form of observations, online questionnaires and workshops, helping us create design solutions that are bespoke to your organisation.
