Working Near Home Could Be The Future

The pandemic has forced millions of people to work from home and highlighted that this arrangement does not work for everyone. This has led to the emergence of the “work near home” concept that allows people to still have access to an office, while avoiding public transit into dense cities.

Companies typically use coworking spaces to serve as satellite offices in the suburbs, allowing employees to still cut down on stressful, daily commutes.

Adopting these offices allows companies and workers to cut down on expenses and be more flexible, since coworking spaces operate on short-term leases and are fully-outfitted with furniture.

Using these spaces may make it easier to accommodate all work styles or employees who simply do not have the resources they need to work at home. However, it is up to business leaders to make sure they are staying in the loop with other colleagues.

There are also issues of distancing when working in coworking spaces, which are known for their densely-packed environments. Still, it seems that many operators have adjusted their normal operations in order to meet new CDC recommendations, such as increased sanitation and keeping desks spaced out.

While it is still uncertain what the future of the workforce holds, companies can still do their part to make sure employees from all backgrounds are accommodated.
