Why a hybrid workplace?

COVID-19 had a tremendous impact on business around the world, suddenly and significantly increasing remote work. Months later, many organizations discovered remote work delivered unexpected benefits, such as increased productivity and improved worker engagement, as well as the opportunity to lower real estate costs by shedding unused office space.

The office isn’t going away, but its role is changing. Most employees still desire a space to work together in-person occasionally. That’s why many organizations are redesigning their office spaces to facilitate safe, productive in-person collaboration: favoring hot desks and hoteling over fixed seating, outfitting meeting rooms with enhanced video conferencing capabilities, and using outdoor space for work in the open air. Worker health and safety remains front and center, so redesigned workspaces will often include new services such as occupancy monitoring, enhanced sanitation procedures, and continuous air quality monitoring.
