Today is a good day – the release of Sodexo’s 2013 Workplace Trends Report, a compilation of pressing business issues that are top of mind for organizations looking to be more productive and grow.
I know what you are thinking…another report that lists a bunch of things your company isn’t doing, right? Actually, that’s the exciting part. Most of the topics in this Report are about things businesses do every day; it’s just how they can do them with a more progressive approach, or with better outcomes.
Sodexo’s global research team is tasked with staying at the forefront of understanding individual and organizational drivers.
As a global leader in services that improves Quality of Life, an essential factor in individual and organizational performance, we have gained our expertise from working with thousands of clients over time to foster their business success and we share that insight through this work, our thought leadership and reporting.
As we write about in the Report, progressive organizations are beginning to understand and solve for human needs when designing workplace services and solutions including viewing individuals and organizations holistically and dynamically. This Report identifies leading marketplace indicators focusing key people- and community-centric workplace practices that create competitive advantage for organizations and value for employees.
Among its 12 leading trends, the Report takes a deep dive into issues ranging from recruiting and mentoring talent to the corrosive effects of workplace bullying, and from the distinct benefits of sustainable working environments to integrated people and facilities solutions that deliver increased individual and organizational performance.
For a comprehensive look at what is driving efficiency, productivity and satisfaction in the workplace, this Report offers a unique perspective on what is essential to employers and employees. So, you see, it is a good day – I invite you to take a look at the 2013 Workplace Trends Report, then take a step back, look around you and think about doing things differently…for good.
