Tropical Paradise vs Grotty Industrial Estate


“If your boss is a narcissist and you work in a tropical paradise you’ll still be miserable. If your boss is kind and has empathy then a grotty industrial estate in Slough would be just fine.”

The quote above was taken from a comment on the article below.

At People Insight, we often see people comment on the state of their office or how it would be ‘nice’ to have better kitchen facilities. Whilst we may drool over fancy surroundings, we find office environment is rarely correlated with employee engagement.

Much better that people get a sense of achievement from working at their company, have the right opportunities to learn and grow, and are recognised for their contribution – all three highly correlated with engagement.
