Three New Realities Shaping Hybrid Workplace Strategies
Office of the Future Revisited is focused on the new realities shaping hybrid workplace strategies. In this time of cautious confidence, office space is increasingly in demand. However, the role of the office will be forever changed as we enter the post-pandemic world.
The hybrid movement has just begun, and there is no single blueprint for successfully implementing it. Each organization must approach its transition with the question, “What does hybrid mean for us?"
Our latest insight establishes three realities that have significant implications as organizations experiment and develop new workplace strategies.
- Demand for office space is accelerating. An improving economy paired with strong office-using employment growth is driving office space demand.
- Hybrid is here to stay. Our global Experience per Square Foot™ (XSF) data shows that employees with choice and control over where they work perform better. At the same time, the data shows that employees need the office to support their desire to learn, make meaningful cultural connections to their organizations and to engage more deeply with colleagues.
- The role of the office has changed. There is no one standard for the future. Most organizations believe the office is now the place for building culture and for inspiring creativity and innovation.
And see how six different companies are approaching hybrid workplaces — a window into real-time thinking and experimentation at a time when no one size solution fits every organization.
