You tell us your unique vision, and we will create a turnkey solution that ensures your employees wellbeing and productivity is prioritised.
A hybrid working model combines both remote work and in-person office work. This gives employees more flexibility when it comes to different working styles/preferences, such as location, environment and other external factors which may require someone to work from home. A hybrid working model usually refers to employees either having the choice to work in office/at home or only required to come into the workplace part time.
There are many benefits of hybrid working; both for businesses and employees. Allowing the option for remote or in-office working, offers more support to employees, accommodates to different working preferences and helps promote a stronger work-life balance. This model allows for a more self-managed working approach, that places more trust in employees and offers a larger balance between work and personal life, leading to higher productivity and retention.
When it comes to hybrid office design, the main factors you should consider are:
Layout and structure - consider all working styles and preferences and design an office that accommodates for both remote, in-person, collaborative and quiet working.
Technology - if your business allows for both remote and office-work, understanding the technical capabilities your space will require is an important step in ensuring your workplace functions for all types of working, and permits connectivity between those online and those in person.
Comfort and functionality - making sure that your office space, for those that work in-person is a comfortable, and highly functional space, optimised for productivity will allow for your hybrid working model to act seamlessly, where employees can easily connect with others through an optimal designed space and quality amenities.
During the 2021 GCUC conference, delegates from Area, 360 Workplace, Orega and Work.Life discussed how the evolution of office life will impact how we design and use workspaces.
2021 was the year of ‘Office Obsession’. Conversations around the future workplace have become mainstream - it’s fantastic that so many people are now interested in discussing how to improve workplace culture and enhance the space we work in. After all, that’s what we’re about!
