Working at home and at the office
It remains to be seen how the world will look with a vaccine and post-recession. One thing is increasingly clear: offices will be furnished differently than they are today, and used differently too, even when corona is now longer prevalent. Trends that would have otherwise taken years to develop have speed-up considerably, such as work outside of fixed locations.
Hybrid working – a situation in which employees alternate between home and office work – is now the new standard. This raises the question of how to keep the home workers a part of what is happening in the office and vice versa, a d how to keep the office an attractive place to be in this hybrid situation.
There must now be closer collaboration between the traditionally separate fields of real estate, HR and I.T..
An office concept that adds value
It only makes sense to divest office space (m2) if it’s not at the cost what keeps your organisation afloat (cohesion). Many organisations focus mainly on where their employees must work or can work. Nevertheless, it is wise to carefully examine the kind of work they do, then to determine together where they can best do this. If you approach your workplace dilemmas in this order, you can make sustainable decisions and develop a hybrid workplace strategy in which your office concept adds value.
How it works and what you will get
We are developing a hybrid concept together called ‘Spacesizing’. CBRE’s spacesizing process tailor-made for your organisation. We look for the optimal balance between:
- The space required now and post-corona
- The technology you need to work responsibly from remote locations
- Maintaining and strengthening your social capital.
