The role of the future-proof office
Research (in Dutch) shows that, before the corona crisis rocked our world, Dutch employees commuted to the office 4.1 days a week on average. That ship has sailed. Even if we are allowed to move freely again soon, we will go to the office less: on average about 2.8 days each week. After all, not all work necessarily has to be done in the office. Thanks to cloud-based solutions and modern collaboration tools, we can work wherever we want. We will never stop going to the office because we miss the spontaneous interactions and the face-to-face meetings with colleagues and managers too much. The future-proof office will function more as a meeting place and conference area than the workplace factory it once was.
A modern office is flexible enough to boost cooperation and teamwork. By allocating space according to use and activity, you encourage activity-driven work. Do you need to concentrate on something or make a few customer calls? Then it would help if you had a quiet environment, which could be at home, but also a secluded area at the office. Are you looking to interact more socially, or is it time for a brainstorming session with your team? Then you need an inspiring conference room. A dedicated space for each employee? That is so 2019.
A fit with professional and personal needs
Focusing, working together, networking, and getting inspired ... Whether at home, in a co-working space close to home, on a tropical island with your feet in the sand, or in one of your company's offices, we believe people should be able to work where they feel most comfortable and productive. In an environment that suits their professional and personal needs. But how do you empower your employees to choose where they work, according to their scheduled activity? How do you transform your office into that hybrid, multifunctional, and flexible workplace?
