Sodexo recently teamed up with Quora Consulting to undertake research in to knowledge workers in the UK. With a sample size of nearly 3,000 people, we’re delighted to provide you with some of the highlights from our findings relating to the links between knowledge worker productivity and the workplace.
The term ‘knowledge worker’ is used to describe those whose work typically involves the use of their mind over muscle. In the UK, knowledge workers today represent 60% of the overall labour force and are the single fastest growing segment. The needs and expectations of knowledge workers in relation to their work and working environment are unique. Meeting these unique needs and expectations can not only make a big difference to employee retention and employee engagement, it can, in turn, make a significant contribution to the performance of the organisations theywork for.
We are delighted to be contributing to the research in this area, and developing a better understanding of how the workplace can provide the key to unlocking greater productivity.
