In recent years, there has been much discussion surrounding what the future office might look like, but the challenges brought by Covid-19 have pushed these discussions to the forefront. For five months, we were restricted to home working, and now that things are starting to open up, what we expect from the workplace is likely to have changed. According to McKinsey research, 80% of people say they enjoy working from home, but there is strong evidence that teamwork yields better results and some think that the benefits of remote working can’t compensate for what’s lost in creativity and connectedness when employees are in the workplace.
In the post-Covid world, employers need to ensure their employees feel safe at work, and now that most industries have shown that home-working can be effective, businesses need to make their workplaces a desirable destination to help entice workers back to the office.
There’s no one-size-fits-all solution, but there are a few important things to consider that can help you transform your space into a destination that your employees will want to visit. It may go beyond just design changes, and into deeper cultural changes that will alter your business for the better in the long term, and help with the transition to creating an office destination in the short term.
In this blog, we discuss the main areas to focus on to make your office a desirable destination your staff will love.
