Staff Motivation Queries

The study was conducted by a group of companies HeadHunter in conjunction with the Health Office in autumn 2009. 3,888 persons from all over Russia participated in the survey.

It's no secret that one of the most important elements of staff motivation is the comfort and convenience of office space. Surveys conducted by HeadHunter and the Health Office showed that more than 90 per cent of the respondents indicated a direct link between the job ease and the quality and efficiency of their work. At the same time, 47 per cent of respondents noted that in comfort, self-reliance was improving and the quality of work was performed. 44 per cent of the staff in a comfortable position improves the mood and allows for better concentration and performance. 35 per cent of the respondents indicated that the comfort conditions indicated the concern of the superiors. And only 2 per cent of respondents do not believe in the value of the comfortful workplace and believe that other aspects of corporate life are much more important.

An analysis of the collected materials showed that, by the level of impact on the working capacity, the working chair ' s convenience is 4th place after the following factors: health, air venting and temperature in the office. Interesting fact: 33 per cent of the respondents expressed appreciation for the importance of the seat ' s health convenience as " having a strong impact " . However, the same respondents noted that this factor only partially affects work capacity. Thus, it was found that the overall impact of this aspect was much higher than other factors, such as weather, office air ventilation, office aesthetic characteristics and furniture colour.
