In the 1950s, office workers could expect to do their jobs from corner offices or large, utilitarian spaces. In the 1980s, they might expect to work in cubicles. Today, open offices are popular, but so are more workspace options than ever before.
Semi-closed offices, themed rooms with nap pods, home offices, coworking locations, coffee shops, and libraries are all places where modern workers might set up their laptops.
To understand what qualities employees value in their workspaces, Clutch surveyed 1,003 knowledge workers, or part- or full-time employees who can do their jobs from a desk.
Our findings show that workers value aesthetics, comfort, flexibility, and community in the physical spaces they occupy while getting their jobs done.
