    The Golf Channel hit a hole in one with the revitalization of part of its Orlando campus. The channel turned to Walker Design LLC to create a high-functioning, multi-use space within a 1,200-square-foot area. The space holds conference and training areas plus a genius bar. It has fully integrated audio/visual technology, integrated writable surfaces for informal gatherings and multiple movable seating options that can house 150 occupants. The floor and ceiling patterns reflect lively, pixelated textures to contrast with and balance the static walls. Photography by Chad Baumer Photography.

Survey: Companies can’t innovate without innovative workplace

1024px-Capital_One_logo.svgIn recent years, workplace design and environment have become a significant part of company culture – and a tool to help drive productive, innovative and collaborative work.

Capital One’s Work Environment Survey of office professionals across five major markets (New York City, Chicago, Dallas, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C.), reveals the influence that design has on employees in the workplace.

Aggregated results from workers across the country include:

· Design Drives Innovation: 82% of office professionals believe companies can’t encourage innovation unless their workplace environment is innovative, and 63% feel innovation isn’t reflected at all in their current workplace’s design

· Local Culture is Missing: 69% believe local culture isn’t currently reflected in their company’s workplace design

· Flexibility is a Must: 85% of office professionals surveyed believe flexible workplace design is important and 82% of office professionals have their best ideas when they’re working in flexible space options

· Wanted: Attractive Design Elements: The most desired design elements include: natural light (62%), artwork and creative imagery (44%) and easily reconfigurable furniture and spaces (43%)

· A Gap in Health & Wellness: Most office professionals said their company doesn’t currently offer mother’s nursing room (76%), and environmentally friendly programs (70%). When asked to prioritize on-site benefits, the top three responses were healthy food and beverage options (41%) and relaxation/social areas (36%) and health/wellness centers and programming (35%)

· Location, location, location?: When considering a new job, nearly 2 in 3 (64%) office professionals believe that workplace design and environment is equally important or more important than office location

In addition to aggregated results, the Work Environment Survey took a look at millennials’ preferences in the workplace:

· Design Drives Innovation: 86% of office professionals believe companies can’t encourage innovation unless their workplace environment is innovative, and 57% feel innovation isn’t reflected at all in their current workplace’s design

Survey Methodology

The Capital One Work Environment Survey was conducted by Wakefield Research among 500 office professionals employed full-time in each of the following DMAs: Chicago, Dallas, New York City, San Francisco and Washington, DC between May 24 and June 7, 2017, using an email invitation and an online survey. Quotas have been set to ensure reliable and accurate representation of the employed population in each DMA.

Results of any sample are subject to sampling variation. The magnitude of the variation is measurable and is affected by the number of interviews and the level of the percentages expressing the results. For the interviews conducted in this particular study, the chances are 95 in 100 that a survey result does not vary, plus or minus, by more than 2.0 percentage points overall, and 4.4 percentage points in each DMA from the result that would be obtained if interviews had been conducted with all persons in the universe represented by the samples.
