Public transport remains the most important amenity among office-based employees from Generations Z, Y, X, and Baby Boomers, according to a CBRE Romania survey. Furthermore, more than half of them would attend events organised in the office space leased by their employer. Meanwhile, the office workspace remains popular among Gen Y employees.

Asked how they would prefer to relax after work hours, about 70% of respondents consider walks in the park as the most desirable.

“Hybrid working has created multiple challenges for companies, but also for employees, and has proven to influence their performance and satisfaction. Our study gives us a deep understanding of employees, and segmentation by generation helps us to form a complex picture of the preferences and needs of the workforce in the new context,” said Tudor Ionescu, Head of A&T Services | Office, CBRE Romania.

In terms of office attendance, Millennials work at least 2 days a week from the office, and 43% go to the office more than 3 days a week. As with Generation Z, Millennials significantly prefer to work from home on Fridays.

Across generations, employees cited services and specialty retail facilities as some of the facilities that are attractive near office buildings.

The survey had 500 respondents as part of a campaign conducted throughout September online as well as among tenant companies in the 48 office buildings managed by CBRE Romania.
