Reinventing the Workplace, Post COVID-19

Almost two years ago we were hastily told to “stay at home” and the work-from-home mandate was quickly enforced to combat the spread of COVID-19.

Spare rooms and dining tables were quickly adapted to become functional workstations and employees joined new virtual communication channels to be able to maintain existing work relationships and build new connections.

Now, in the UK, restrictions are lifting and a safe return to the office is encouraged. Many businesses are in favour of the return and preparations are being made.  Since hybrid working proved effective during the pandemic, businesses are adapting their workspaces to accommodate not only the safe return of their employees but also a permanent shift toward hybrid working.

Tech giant Google recently announced they will spend £730m to ‘reinvigorate its UK offices’, with plans to provide more space for inclusive meeting rooms and flexible working.

Benefits of Hybrid Workspaces

  1. Improved employee well-being
  2. Improved employee retention rates
  3. Improved productivity
  4. Improved space design: hot desk options, more space to create comfortable meeting zones
