  • 82% said workplace design influences innovation
  • 82% said they have their best ideas in flexible workspaces 
  • 57% said their workplace does not support innovation
  • 71% said workplace design is as important or more important than location when choosing an employer
  • Most wanted design elements are natural light and art
  • On-site food and beverages are more important than fitness facilities or even, surprisingly, quiet spaces.
