Half of workers want private office space to perform efficiently

They believe it is more important than available office technology and workplace perks.

Half (52%) of Hong Kong workers believe that the presence of private working space is the top factor to create ideal physical space at work, according to a research entitled The Future of Work: APAC Study by Adobe Research.

Employees believe that it is important to have their own space where they can create their own individualised working environment – a finding that runs against the trend towards co-working spaces and hot-desking.

Availability of state-of-the-art technology is second priority at 44% for Hong Kong office workers as it enables them to work across all devices, collaborate with their team and automate menial tasks to save time.

Workers’ access to lounge and relaxation areas closely follows at 43% in creating ideal office conditions.

Similarly, 15% of Hong Kongers believe that the overall office aesthetic is not a determining factor in creating the ideal office space which runs in contrast with neighboring mainland China wherein more than half (59%) have a high expectation in office design.
