#24 The importance of working environment on performance
Mar 31, 2021 Season 2 Episode 24
Chris, Paul & Rachel chat about People (HR, L&D, Career Coaching & Recruitment)

This week we're talking about the importance of the working environment to employee performance.

 With the World slowly returning some degree of freedom to us....we hope....today we talked specifically around what the working environment can do to impact performance of the business through the eyes of HR, L&D and Recruitment 

Rachel started us off defining the 2 aspects to the working environment:

  • Physical environment – contentedness, health and well-being, Open offices were designed for open communication, collaboration and knowledge sharing
  • Behavioural  environment – shaping work enjoyment, working relationships & processes – influenced by leaders & managers

 We go on to cover a range of topics (some actually related to the title today!) including; 

  • Have we seen the trends in environment before but not on this scale? 
  • how do you define a culture if you never come together?
  • Do some businesses want to come back in to the office but are too scared to go against the grain of flex and hybrid trends?
