Why can’t we all agree on the best use for some screen-centric workspaces?

Together with our research partner Work Design Magazine, we launched a survey to learn more about what screens tell us about how people really work. Between May 14th – 31st of this year, 368 of you participated in our research. Here is part one of a deeper dive into the results! Make sure to read the overview here.

Getting You Up to Speed

In our previous article about the Screen-Centric Future Workplace project completed by Survature and Work Design Magazine, we mentioned that we recruited readers of Work Design to participate in our behavior-enabled survey (BES) because the community represents an innovation-heavy and service-oriented industry.

We highlighted data that shows the Screen-Centric Future is already here. In addition, the data collected in our study shows that adapting to technology is not necessarily driven by younger generations because all generations have adapted and prospered. Furthermore, measuring people’s work habits involving screens and technology does reveal meaningful differences in terms of how people really work, and in a related manner, what they really do.
