Asian Pacific region tops global office attendance rates: JLL
New workplace presence directives and evolving hybrid protocols have led to people putting in more time in the workplace. A year-long report performed by JLL spanning over 20,000 office workers globally reveals that since 1H2023, 80% of employees were putting in three or even more days weekly in the workplace, matched up to 51% in 1H2022 and 59% in 2H2022. “Overall, most overseas organisations globally (87%) are motivating their staff members to do the job from the office at least some of the time,” JLL adds.
As in-office expectations persist, office participation is expected to escalate. JLL includes that employees appreciate the office space as a center for socialisation, development and professional development. “The workplace has always been, and will still be, main to work experience and society,” said Susheel Koul, JLL’s chief executive officer of job dynamics, Asia Pacific.
On average, staff members globally put in just over 3 days per week in the office, with peak appearance on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, states JLL. It includes that variances in office presence throughout various markets are mostly because of a mix of cultural subtleties, living setups and other structural variables.
Koul recommends creating strong areas accommodating collaborative and focused job to meet workers’ recurring demand for human network. He includes this will be the most effective approach to urge regular office appearance.
In the Apac area, Taiwan leads with workers attending the office 4.7 days a week, followed by India (4.4 days), South Korea (4.2 days), Japan (3.8 days), and Singapore (3.4 days). Thailand logs a regular workplace attendance of 3.3 days, whereas Australia stands at 3.1 days.
” As more employees return to the workplace a number of days a week, we’re continuing to discover the changing choices for ways of working and how we can better utilize innovation and versatile arrangements to satisfy these assumptions.”
JLL’s study shows that, regardless of a global return to the workplace, Asia Pacific (Apac) workers are in the office than their counterparts in the United States and UK. In a Dec 1 news release, the consultancy mentions that whilst office appearance in the US and UK averages around two days a week, Apac countries illustrate greater participation, averaging over 4 days per week.
