A graphics employee at Cryovac, including vacation and sick time, will roughly spend 18,400-18,800 hrs at work over ten years. Research In Right Management Consultants' survey of 3,500 "high-value, top-performing" employees from 26 organizations, respondents said "work environment" was the most important factor influencing their desire to stay with the organization. "They may not talk specifically about walls and workstations, but the way an office is configured says volumes about whether a culture is open and flexible."
"Workers want environments where they can work flexibly, where they can work collaboratively and feel they're in the loop," says Rich Pinola, Right's CEO in Philadelphia. (Grossman) Types of Cubicles PREMISE Complements growth and change
