The Global Workplace Survey Comparison 2023, from the Gensler Research Institute, surveyed 14,000 workers across nine countries and three continents to understand shifts in how employees across the world are working. The survey findings illuminate a critical divide: while employees rely on the office for productivity, it must adapt to their evolving expectations — and so far, the workplace isn’t cutting it.

In this webinar, Gensler’s Global Director of Workplace Research, Janet Pogue McLaurin, is joined by a panel of workplace planners and designers to review the survey’s key insights. Together, they delve into new projects that embody a reimagined office experience, offering valuable case studies for inspiration. Our Global Workplace Trends 2023 webinar covers:

  • How employees’s expectations and productivity needs are evolving worldwide
  • Actionable strategies to leverage the workplace as a supportive and engaging environment where employees choose to work
  • Real-world success stories where office experiences were successfully transformed to align with employee expectations
