Co-working vs. owned office space

A few years ago office trends saw many companies changing the way they operate by opting to use co-working spaces and hot desking environments that answered to the needs of collaborative employees. While that suited the 5-day-a-week office goers of pre-Covid times, its appropriateness for todays’ workforce is uncertain.

Office vs. flexibility

There is still a growing demand for complete flexibility over where people work at any time, so the asynchronous way of working is here to stay. 92% of business leaders enable asynchronous work patterns within their organizations affirming that when executed effectively, this way of working can enhance productivity, mental health, work-life balance as well as decrease stress levels.

The offices of the future

“From our latest study, it’s clear that people value going into their company offices and still want to do so when they can. With the constantly evolving working world, the offices of the future need to utilise technology to adapt to these changes, but it’s not enough to just offer the option of an office, the space and its tech need to be designed specifically for todays’ working habits to support and encourage productive, collaborative, successful and happy employees.”
