Much of today’s global workforce work from home, coffee shops, airports, coworking spaces or flexible offices. This is due to many workers requiring a work environment that is agile, which has led companies to create office atmospheres reflective of the “work from anywhere” culture.
For example, some organizations have started offering employees a few days a week of remote working, while others have adopted flexible work hours that allows employees to work on their own time rather than a traditional 9 to 5.
This shift in workplace policy has been swift — and for good reason. Flexible working has been found to reduce commute times, which in turn reduces employee stress levels and boosts their overall productivity. Additionally, offering flexible options helps improve a company’s ability to attract and retain top talent.
Flexible working and coworking spaces are also perfect for companies of all sizes who are looking to scale up and down easily.
As the gig and flexible economy continues to grow, more and more companies will offer flexible zones, hot desks and work cafes in order to keep up with demand from today’s workforce.
