Hybrid operating models have brought new challenges to implementing and measuring sustainability initiatives. The Global Workplace Report has shown that modern organisations are embracing the new collaborative, yet remote, working world, and implementing measures to drive positive change in their areas of influence.
89.1% of organisations agree that they’re aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in support of their ESG agenda.
30.9% say sustainability is woven into their sales proposition to customers.
Another 29.8% say it’s part of procurement requirements for vendors.
39.5% of employees say they will choose an employer based on that company’s alignment with their purpose and values.
Sustainability is key to global workspace design.
Organisations are now taking a more prominent position in how they build their brand, attract and retain talent, differentiate and reduce operational costs.
Businesses will need to look to increase the scope of their sustainability efforts and drive positive change by engaging employees both individually and collectively.
This they’ll do by working to comprehend the sustainability of the remote working directive as a whole, across all work locations and employee workstyles, to understand their current situation and where to focus future efforts.
