The future of work is not one-size-fits-all, and that means that a variety of office environments are expected to emerge in order to accommodate the numerous styles of working.
Coworking has become one such option for many companies who are transitioning to hybrid work models and want a fully-equipped workspace closer to their employees’ homes.
However, coworking has also had to shift its business model to meet this growing demand. Instead of open office plans where any member can walk in and sit, operators are adopting a more agile approach that can help companies customize their space.
What is being referred to as coworking 3.0, these companies are addressing the new post-pandemic needs of businesses which includes new models like hybrid working, management agreements, the hub-and-spoke model, and franchises.
The critical component when addressing these needs is prioritizing the occupier experience.
Because each business is unique, creating an infrastructure that can accommodate varying needs will be essential. This means incorporating smart, customizable technology so remaining agile is simple.
