WE Research

WE Research lies at the heart of what WE is all about…helping our “tribe” be the best they can be in their role as facility managers, workplace strategists, corporate real estate executives, and other workplace experts.

Here’s the Latest in WE Research: 

Chris Hood, founding member of WE, is a contributing author of the recently published book Black Holes and White Spaces: Reimagining the Future of Work and HR with the CHREATE Project. This book offers a collection of forward-looking advice from over 70 exemplary chief HR officers and other leaders whose mission is to “disruptively accelerate the progress of the HR profession to meet the unprecedented challenges and opportunities of the new world of work”

In his chapter, “A Vision of the Workplace in 2025: Doom or Boom?”, Chris Hood describes how head-count planning and workforce cost-cutting will be replaced by an adaptive-value model in which employees own their own reality and managers make decisions based on work required, rather than head count.

WE commissioned Dr. Sally Augustin to create a compendium of research on the impact of workplace influences on the employee experience and ultimately, their performance. This publication is called Applying What Scientist Know About Where and How People Work Best.

And to help make this research even more assessable and meaningful to our members we have boiled it down to an interactive infographic. Click on the image below to make it larger and roll over the images to see the highlights from the research. If you want to obtain even more of the detail, we encourage you to purchase the book which is available to WE members on-line for $24.95.  This paper was published by the IFMA Foundation with generous funding from the IFMA Corporate Facilities Council and sponsorship from Kimball Office.
