Variety is key in today’s workplace



The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we work, and there is no one-size-fits-all solution for where and how we will spend our working days. Flexible working has proven widely successful among organizations, with many standardising it to numerous extents; be they remote first, office first, or the popular hybrid approach.


With many employees leaving the workforce in 2021, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, a well-planned and cohesive workplace that operates seamlessly, fosters confidence and individuality, and inspires can help bring them back.


The office still has its place in today's work environment, offering opportunities for collaboration, focused work, connections with colleagues, learning, mentoring, fostering company culture, and providing a change of pace from home working. However, the office's role has changed, and it now needs to adapt to the different needs and preferences of employees from different generations.


The future of work is about balance, providing the right quantity and type of space to support different modes of work while operating seamlessly, fostering confidence and individuality, and inspiring employees. The traditional office setup, with a dominant number of workstations, a few meeting rooms, and limited collaborative space no longer works.


The office must reflect the diverse needs and preferences of employees, providing spaces that cater to all, with customizable features and personalization options. This can be challenging, but it's crucial to retain talent and keep the workforce productive. The workday journey varies from person to person and day to day, and the office must be able to accommodate these differences, operating seamlessly, fostering confidence and individuality, and inspiring employees. The key is to provide spaces that allow employees to carry out multiple tasks effectively, with the right tools and resources.


In summary, creating a seamless, confident, and inspiring workplace in the post-pandemic era requires designing for individuality, inspiring with creative and innovative designs, and operating seamlessly with technological tools and software.
