The office

The office

The office is the second most common place to make friends (behind the neighborhood).

But, with only 34% of knowledge workers in the US working in-office full time, that’s likely to change. A couple of recent findings highlight why this is bad news for corporations:

  • Data suggests workers with a “best friend” at work are more likely to stay at their job.
  • Hybrid workers with a “best friend” at work dropped from 22% in 2019 to 17% in June.

Now corporations are taking it upon themselves to forge these relationships, scheduling in-person retreats, on-site training sessions, and virtual coffee chats.

But do workers even care?

  • A recent survey found US workers consider relationships with co-workers to be one of the least important factors of job satisfaction. Work-life balance and compensation ranked highest.
  • Gen Z values work friendships the most, with 16% of 18-25-year-olds saying it’s the most important factor in job satisfaction.
