The COVID-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on workplaces everywhere – lockdowns, social distancing, working from home, flexible working, agile working, hybrid working…all office design terms that people have got used to over the last two years. What the situation has taught us, is that our work environments will be better suited to react to changes as and when they happen; not just in terms of public health situations, but whenever work or employee requests dictate change too.
Successful businesses are ones that can meet changes as and when they happen, so the workplace must be an extension of that going forward. With the technology we have today, there has never been a better time to introduce concepts like flexible, agile and hybrid working; they each have their own benefits and can provide some much-needed growth to a business. It all depends on the unique demands of the company involved, their employees and the work they produce.
So, with that in mind, how can workplace design lend itself to the growth of a business in 2022 and beyond?
