Sodexo: 2012 Workplace Trends Report.
Sodexo, Quality of Daily Life Solutions provider to more than 1,800 corporate clients in the United States, released its 2012 WorkplaceTrends Report today, offering a unique perspective on the workplace that combines insight from clients, academia, principal research, and leading facilities management and human resource trade organizations.
The research predicts continued focus on well-being and the ability to deliver a unique value proposition to business communities that focuses on not only integrated, effective and efficient use of space, but also the performance of human capital. Employees are looking to organizations for tools and resources to help them simplify their lives, stay healthy and balanced, and bring their “whole self” to work as these continue to be top drivers of engagement. Employee engagement, productivity, brand image and loyalty continue to be relevant measures of success.
“For any business wanting to grow, these trends show there is a premium on programs that are outcome driven and on sustainable results that address both people and physical space,” saidMichael Norris, COO and market president for Sodexo’s Corporate segment.
