Workplace leaders around the world have faced unprecedented challenges over the last two years. They had to manage a cycle of office shutdowns and reopenings. They had to keep up with changing CDC regulations on workplace capacity and health and safety measures. They had to help employees and managers get accustomed to new methods of how, where, and when we work. And they had to do it all with little data or guidance. 

If you’ve played any part in managing workplaces during these uncertain times, you are now an expert in working in ambiguity. But after two full years of offices opening and operating amidst a pandemic, there’s now a wealth of data that we can analyze. The only question left is where to find this information… 

Introducing At Work: the 2022 workplace trends report.

Data and trends from workplaces around the world

At Work is meant to give you an up-to-date view of the state of the physical workplace. Your role as a workplace manager is difficult enough. And with the changes the workplace has undergone over the past two years, your job is more important than ever. With this report, we want to help make your life easier with access to information and insights from other workplaces and leaders around the globe. 

In the report, you will find proprietary data from Envoy’s platform, diving into more than 27 million workplace entries, as well as millions of meeting room and desk bookings. Want to know if your own office reopening is in keeping with trends in your metro area or industry? Not sure how to plan ahead for workplace headcount throughout a hybrid workweek? Curious how different teams use hot desks in the office?

You can find all of this data and more in At Work. Inside, you’ll see workplace foot traffic trends and what drove the peaks and lulls from 2020 to 2021. You’ll get data on how far in advance folks scheduled to go work on-site and the most popular days in the office. You’ll find benchmarks for reopening trends by metro area, company size, and industry. And you’ll understand how employees used workplace resources like desks and meeting rooms as traffic picked up throughout the year.

Inspiration and insights from workplace leaders

Looking at trends on what has happened is only half the picture. Workplace leaders like yourself will be critical to leading your organization through future changes, so it’s critical to understand what others in your position are planning too. 

“Creating space for employees to come together to meet, build community, and foster deeper connections is more critical than ever. That’s what will make people choose the workplace. That’s what we workplace managers must aspire to build,” Tony Vargas, Sprinklr’s Global Head of Workplace, shares in the report.  At Work captures how over 400 employers and workplace professionals think and feel about trends at work. 

Survey and interview participants ranged from Workplace and Facilities Managers to Head of People to Chief Operating Officer. The report dives into how these teams operate, work together, spend their budget, and measure their success. These are the folks who can provide the best insight into where workplaces are headed in 2022 and beyond.
