Looking to the future of workplaces

Published:  08 June, 2017

BSRIA, workplaces of the future

BSRIA’s ‘Workplaces of the future’ publication contemplates the office needs and desires from the perspective of today’s youth, otherwise known as millennials and generation z. It was written by workplace student Ashleigh Bunker, and the work was carried out as part of BSRIA’s Inspire project, which works with local schools, national and local politicians and the media to promote STEM and change its perceptions.

The report considers how the advancement of digital technologies is changing the way we work. Collaboration technologies are ushering in a next-generation workplace that is more productive, efficient and delivers meaningful cost savings to organisations of all sizes across the glove.

Ashleigh’s research included the following.

• How the workplace environment will affect the career choice of different generations.

• How the needs of the different generations will need to be met in the transitioning years.

• The benefits of providing a new workplace environment that meets the expectations of the millennial generation and beyond.
