Ditching the Traditional Office?
A year ago, it was a given that any business with more than a few staff members would have it’s own, dedicated, office space. Then the Covid-19 pandemic hit, and people were forced to quickly re-examine how they used offices and the transition to working from home became all but mandatory. This may have only been an acceleration of a process that would have could have taken place in the next few years anyway. But what happens to the office in a ‘post-Covid’ world?
Will It Be A Return To Normal?
It depends, or so the experts say. They think that it, largely, depends on which industry you work in – but, for the majority of business leaders that believe they can do better, it presents an opportunity. This could be the forward-thinking business leader’s chance to move beyond a 9-5 centric work week and on to an improved work-life balance, greater flexibility, a much larger talent pool, improved efficiencies and a happier workforce.
By keeping the best parts of the office environment: the close-knit teams and relationships, the highly effective task-force meetings, the collaboration and communication. But, doing away with the lengthy meetings that never seem to come to a conclusion, the totally inflexible working hours and styles, the geographical limitations placed on talent and the commute could reap huge rewards for many businesses.
What About Relationship Building?
A genuine concern for many is that their best business relationships have been built in person – how will we forge strong connections in the future if we don’t have a physical space to do so?
Well, we think that while the cumbersome office block dedicated to one company may have had it’s heyday – the flexible workspace could be on the rise.
