The Leesman Office tool has been collecting data on the performance of office spaces since late 2010 and our benchmarks are now generated from the largest independent database of workplace satisfaction surveys available. This now gives us an unparalleled capacity to report and benchmark your results against a series of key organisational performance indicators.
