Employees today are interested in having more flexible office spaces than ever before. The idea of a traditional office lease is becoming more of a thing of the past. People have seen the improvements that flexibility can offer post-pandemic. Many businesses that opened up and run the hook for office space are now stuck paying out their extra rent. People that were involved in co-working spaces were able to save money as well as access the office space when they needed it. With the size of the buildings and the space that commercial real estate takes up, creating a new and important relationship between the tenants and the landlords which is flexible can help to ease mindsets and make the idea of work easier.
Large-scale co-working sites are now teaming up with many major corporations. By having corporate partners with co-working spaces it is possible to open up state-of-the-art facilities while also making sure that a corporation can maintain its daily operations. More companies are determining that they can use a hybrid workplace model to offer ideal accommodations for each level of the company. The hybrid working model will ensure that there are accommodations for almost any type of office space and Fortune 500 companies as well as smaller corporations can all benefit from having this scalable and branded area to work in.
Based on reports completed under a coronet global survey on flexibility in the workplace, most people responding suggested that they did not want a full-time remote working arrangement. 59% of respondents said their company’s approach was always to the office first but the number had continued to drop below 10% before the pandemic. Respondents suggested that they wanted to experience more flexibility in their workplace and have a workspace that was more functional and supportive for convenience. The office plays a significant role in how a company operates and having a more casual and flexible office space ensures that a company can have a brighter future by scaling their costs. A flexible and more collaborative workspace that doesn’t have assigned seating, that has proper lounge areas and it has all of the modern technology and amenities that employees would expect can enhance the quality of work.
Before more people return to the workplace it’s likely that we’re going to see a revolution in the way that real estate is divided up and the way that future leases will be handled from landlord’s worldwide. A focus on more collaborative and flexible workspaces is likely to be the norm. Employees in a post-coded world are looking towards a more flexible office environment and want to stay closer to home now that they’ve gotten used to working around a home hub. Having the option to go to a workplace that is close to your home and it’s extremely convenient for you to work out will enhance mindsets towards the modern working world and change the way that people will be able to enjoy a more modern workplace. With around 22% of businesses changing their remote working policies and many more following suit and producing a more flexible workspace, it’s likely only a matter of time before we start to see more businesses changing the idea of traditional office leases and moving into a more flexible workplace ideal.
