Eight out of 10 office workers believe office seating arrangements impact their mental wellbeing, our latest research shows.
At the start of Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK, where well-known names including Prince William, Katy Perry and Stephen Fry have come together to emphasise the importance of talking about mental health, businesses are being urged to take the matter seriously and listen to the needs of their employees.
Research commissioned by Brickendon Digital, the technology and product development arm of Brickendon Consulting, found that 80% of office workers said where they sit in the office has an impact on their day-to-day wellbeing. Moreover, in today’s increasingly flexible working environment where many organisations have adopted hot desking policies in a bid to save space, 69% said not knowing where they were going to sit every day would make them anxious.
“It’s an important issue requiring urgent attention.”
