The enforced “work from home” experiment has met with mixed results with many companies struggling to manage remote workforces effectively and missing out on the benefits of face-to-face collaboration.
Whilst permanent home working suits some, many workers have been struggling to work productively and have experienced feelings of isolation. They miss the productive working environment and the benefits of collaboration and social interaction that offices provide.
Flexible workspaces will see increased demand
Once people return to offices in greater numbers, the flexible workspace sector is expected to see strong demand. Flexible workspaces include serviced offices, coworking and managed workspaces that are fully furnished, with amenities on tap, ready to move into. Companies the world over are seeking to reduce office costs whilst building in more agility to their workspace portfolio. Fewer businesses are confident or comfortable signing long term conventional leases and are therefore seeking flexibility above all.
Many businesses are expected to look for smaller offices, where flexible work patterns can be more easily accommodated, and costs are lower. Therefore, flexible workspaces that provide first class, safe office environments, with a focus on collaboration and wellbeing, are expected to be in high demand.
