More than half (53%) of job hunters would turn down a role if they did not like the company’s office or working environment, a survey of 1,014 UK workers carried out by etailer Furniture123.co.uk has revealed. One in two respondents cite the location of the office as key, 41% would be put off by outdated décor, while a lack of natural light would deter 38% of workers. Almost a third (32%) would be influenced in their decision to take a job by broken or outdated furniture and the same number said a dirty or unhygienic workplace is a deal-breaker.
