While some companies have welcomed back a percentage of their staff back into the office, others continue to encourage workers to work remotely.
What does this mean for the office? More importantly, what does this mean for coworking and flexible workspaces?
As the uncertainty around the pandemic and the return to the office continues, it seems like organizations will increasingly adopt a hybrid work model, where they have employees come in and work remotely on a weekly or monthly basis.
Some believe that hybrid work models present an important opportunity for coworking spaces. For one, many people have realized that working from home is not optimal and many are eager to return to an office setting (even if it is not their company’s headquarters). Another reason is loneliness and alienation, and coworking spaces can provide a middle ground for companies that want to keep their employees’ mental health in check, while also keeping them engaged and motivated.
