Advancements in technology, shifts in the global economy and an evolving culture are shaping the way workplaces look. Now, employees not only want a place to get their best work done, but want a full experience.
More and more companies are looking to include sustainable and wellness-focused designs. This includes adding greenery, plants, aquatic systems, ergonomic furniture, natural light, fresh air and other features that help build an environment that is both productive and beneficial to an employee’s wellbeing.
Additionally, the next phase in the flexible space sector is dynamic flexibility, which ensures that providers should be dynamic enough to adapt and transform to a constantly changing business environment.
Furthermore, employees are now expecting branded offices from their employers. A branded office provides value-added services, partner discounts and more that is beneficial to employees.
Collaborative workspaces will continue to become a popular option that allows professionals to achieve a work-life balance. These offices help workers create meaningful relationships both professionally and personally, which has been found to boost morale.
Technology integration is also expected to help transform the workplace through mobile applications, office management software, office planning systems and more to create an enhanced employee experience.
