Today is “Improve Your Office Day” . . . and a Survey Finds What Workers Want to Change at Work
You didn’t know this, but today is a completely made-up holiday called “Improve Your Office Day.” Seriously. That makes things like “Grandparents’ Day” and “Sweetest Day” look legitimate.
I think it might have been invented by Staples, because they ran a survey in honor of Improve Your Office Day, asking workers what they’d most want to fix around their offices.
“Getting a new boss” didn’t make the list . . . 78% of the people surveyed said that they’d give their boss a letter grade of “A” or “B.”
—44% would eliminate office politics.
—41% would allow telecommuting.
–37% would upgrade the computers or other office technology.
—35% would get nicer or more comfortable office furniture.
—34% would provide more private work areas.
–And 34% would want more flexible hours.
