Now More Than Ever, Workplaces Should Be Designed For Positive Experiences

There are multiple requirements to create a successful office. Yet even in our current situation of physical distancing and limited person-to-person contact, the social office is still integral to the future of work.

For some time, businesses have been changing their approach to the workplace, by focusing on the experience and wellbeing of the people who use it.

Features such as ergonomic furniture, effective lighting, temperature, and visual elements that evoke comfort are all essential in the modern workplace. This is why some large headquarters now feature various features such as massage rooms, kitchens, canteens, and extensive breakout spaces.

In addition to a social workplace, future offices need to focus on technology and sustainability to attract the best staff and customers. But above all, the building must be designed to be pleasant to work in.
