Workplace Experience Reimagined

 

Today, as the majority of us work from home, beautifully-designed offices all over the world stand empty. The current pandemic situation has impacted businesses in a myriad of ways and has forced us to rethink the way we work.

If there is anything that we have learnt in the past weeks, it’s not only that we can work remotely, but also how important it is to have social face-to-face interaction, even if it is over video conference! (virtual drinks anyone?) Secondly, if not set-up already, we are all trying to get the right set-up for frictionless working to remain productive at home, all while trying not to spill your soup all over your workstation (aka kitchen table).

The global workforce is currently being up-skilled in working remotely and this trend is expected to continue. The need for collaboration, employee engagement and flexible working is now going to be more important than ever – enabling staff to work with whoever, from whenever, wherever they want. Now is the time to understand what impact COVID-19 has on future ways of working and utilization of real estate, ensuring that your workplace has the right infrastructure and tools to enable the next level of mobility, productivity and engagement.

The future of work is going to be defined by better, smarter experiences and technology is set to play a much bigger role in that – now is probably a good time to re-evaluate how workplace experience can be enhanced for when your employees leave their home comforts behind and head back to the office. Hopefully the day will come sooner rather than later, but for now working from home is the new normal and our team is always available if you’d like to start discussing any future plans.
