Crowd-solving participants at the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year Forum™ advise on how best to get ready for the future workplace. These are uncertain times for employers and employees alike.

The Czech office property market, in particular the Prague market, has recorded an intensive construction of modern office buildings in past years. During a single year 2015, the Prague market absorbed approximately 190,000 square meters of new office space, and also for this and the next year there is expectation of new development. Due to this situation, older office objects are becoming slowly uncompetitive.

“The office is the first impression people have of how it will be to work with you,” said Ladislav Kučera, the head of Hays, and chair of AmCham’s Human Resource Committee, “and that is becoming more and more important. A few years ago, the compensation you offered counted for 70-80% of a recruit’s decision. Now, it is 60%. Where you are located, the quality and style of your building, and the atmosphere in your office is a big part of that other 40%. You should not discount how much the decision is influenced by the recruit’s first impression when they walk in the building.”

However, how is it possible that someone benefits really well when changing their lifestyle habits, losing fat and improving their fitness? And someone else who uses the same - scientifically proven recommendations - is not that effective or is getting very slow results, which kills his/her motivation? The answer to this may be hidden in our DNA.
