Why are young employees rejecting traditional offices?

PLACEmaking provides a detailed insight into the decline of young workers accepting jobs in traditional offices, highlighting the need for employers to adapt to the modern working world

According to a study by Mindspace, 21% of 18-24 years olds have rejected a job offer due to the outdated design and lack of facilities in the employer’s offices. As well as this, most under 25s believe that the technology they are provided with is “terrible”, resulting in most purchasing their own equipment or being unable to function at full capacity.
