Back to work: Workplace reimagined

As companies assemble their back-to-work strategies, a key priority to many is to rethink, reshape and re-evaluate the role of workspaces. In our “Future of Workplace Experience” blog series, we asked leading workplace experts from Knotel, Ricoh and MAPP to share their thoughts on what’s next. Here’s some of the key takeaways:

  • More on-demand bookable spaces with controlled airflow, sanitizing stations
  • Touchless solutions in shared spaces like meeting rooms or desks
  • Hybrid modes of work – flexible working and virtual comms accelerated
  • Emergence of satellite offices reducing the importance of HQ building’s and campuses
  • Offices become a place to experience brand and culture

As we look ahead it seems that ‘work’ as we knew it, will become ‘work from anywhere’. This is a really healthy step toward a much more dynamic, flexible way of working and plays nicely into the previously emerging trends of preferred ways of working. Providing flexible technology that enables employees work seamlessly across different spaces will be more important than ever.
