Community Building

Develop purpose among employees by creating a workplace community where everyone has a shared goal.

October 9, 2018

Organizations with employees who have a strong sense of purpose tend to be more profitable than those who do not. And when employees feel as though they are working toward a shared goal, they are more committed to their work and are more likely to stay in their jobs longer.

One way to instill purpose among employees is to build a thriving workplace community where people can form meaningful bonds with one another.

Living Office can help you achieve this with settings that are purposefully designed to encourage people to relate to each other on a deeper level, and do better work together. By taking this approach, Tavistock Development Company in Orlando, Florida has increased its employees’ sense of community at work — in this case, by 60 percentage points.
