With companies transitioning to hybrid work models, workplace activity across large cities still remains around 50% below pre-pandemic levels.
Kastle Systems data finds that the Dallas area’s activity is sitting just above this level, with 50.7% of employees back into the office.
The Remote Work & Compensation Pulse Survey in May of 2021 revealed that 48% of employees want to be fully remote, while 44% stated they would favor hybrid working. Additionally, 51% of employers support a hybrid model, but merely 5% want full remote work.
With this, coworking spaces are seeing their own boom as people flock to workspaces that provide flexibility in lease and scheduling, something that has become increasingly important for the return-to-the-office.
“We’re seeing companies solve future office needs by addressing work from home, work near home, and the corporate office,” said Nick Clark, founder and CEO of Common Desk. “Companies and employees want flexibility, which most of the time means optionality as opposed to short-term leases.”
