A Portion Of Flexible Users Would Prefer Conventional Offices

New research from Gensler and the British Council of Offices (BCO) entitled ‘2019 Rise of Flexible Workspace in the Corporate Sector’ revealed that 40% of current flexible space users would prefer working from a conventional office.

Furthermore, only 29% agreed or strongly agreed that flexible workplaces had increased their efficiency for tasks that require concentration. Despite this, 57% of these users said they were happier at work.

Now, as the flexible workspace industry continues to evolve, many corporations are finding use in these spaces. According to Gensler’s US Workplace Survey 2019, 14% of respondents working for companies of 100 or more employees starting using coworking as part of their work week.

“Our research suggests that the companies interviewed are all progressively moving away from this individual membership model and capitalizing on lessons learned — implementing a flexible workplace strategy in their own space where they can influence its design, tailor the user experience and envision specific business outcomes,” said Jane Clay, Principal and Design Director at Gensler. “This approach also has the added benefit of enabling large corporates to personalize their space and showcase their brand within a less traditional work environment, with a direct positive impact on their recruiting process.”
