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.

1. Calculations

We analyse your current real estate portfolio and map out your potential space and cost saving opportunities through various scenarios and for different working methods. You will receive a strategy report with our findings

2. Fit and measurements

We examine your work patterns and employee roles using a work mode survey. We look at what tasks can be performed remotely, and for which you need a physical space. That’s how we determine the size of your new workplace and the activities that should be facilitated there. You will receive a prototype of your ‘new way of working’ model

3. Implementation

We advise you on the best strategic approach for implementation of the changes, in addition to advising you about the space you need, can get rid of or adapt. We also help your employees to engage and remain engaged. You will receive an implementation plan with advice for rolling-out changes in your real estate portfolio and among your employees.
