Since around March of this year, many companies have come to the realization that they can operate successfully with a remote workforce. This has led businesses to reconsider whether they still have a need for physical office space, but the importance of these workspaces cannot be underestimated.
While offices will have to undergo major changes to accommodate the new needs of workers, real estate professionals will turn to coworking spaces to offer a workspace for those who need one. So what can we expect from the future of the coworking landscape in the coming months?
For starters, the popular open-office plans will no longer be sought after. Instead, operators will look to install cubicles and other similar barriers between work stations in order to keep employees safe. Additionally, meeting rooms and common areas will see a dip in capacity numbers, while reminders that encourage one-way foot traffic and to physically distance will be present.
Shared residential real estate offices are also expected to continue dwindling down. The fact of the matter is that coworking spaces allow individuals or businesses to scale up or down depending on their needs. Even more, coworking members have access to more amenities, as well as desirable addresses.
Overally, flexibility remains essential for workers looking to return to a physical workspace outside of their home. That is why professional coworking spaces will be highly sought after in the coming months.
