Although there is a light at the end of the pandemic tunnel due to vaccines being distributed, 2021 will still mostly be a year of accommodating remote and flexible work arrangements.
However, the last year has taught many that while working from home can be ideal, it still comes with its own set of challenges such as distractions and limited workplace amenities.
While the emerging idea of “working from anywhere” would undoubtedly have its own obstacles too, it doesn’t necessarily mean getting rid of a work environment altogether.
In fact, workers actually want a physical workspace to come into that is equipped with everything they need, from connectivity to a fully-stocked coffee cart.
More people are seeking well-equipped managed spaces that offer flexible, short-term leases. Ideally, this would range from daily office rentals up to six-month or annual leases.
Some hotels have even jumped on this bandwagon to meet the demand by transforming their suites and offering them as daily offices, while providing users with access to the hotel’s other amenities.
Coworking companies have also adjusted their memberships in order to accommodate this need, with some offering on-demand access to their locations.
These offices are also prepared to meet the growing demand for professionals who are migrating to new cities and suburbs that want a private office closer to their homes.
