Events within the last two years have taught employees that their work setting can be very flexible. In fact, working from home was arguably the biggest change in the world. In today’s article, office space provider Connecticut Business Centers lists some workplace trends that are predicted to make it big this year.
Companies and organizations’ attitudes toward the concept of a centralized workplace are shifting. There will continue to be three main models for where people work: centralized workplaces, decentralized remote organizations, and the hybrid “best of both worlds” approach. What is likely to change in 2022 is that employees will have a choice rather than being forced to align with whatever model their company has chosen out of necessity.
Flexible Working Schedules
As the business landscape becomes more mobile, business professionals are more interested in working when and where they can be most productive. Flexible shared office space with 24/7 access appeals to workers whose lives do not always fit into a 9 to 5 routine. In addition, more flexible shared office spaces are popping up in suburban areas to meet the demand for workers who want to work closer to home, reducing commute times.
Office Workspace Saving
Small and medium-sized businesses will continue to discover how cost-effective flexible shared office spaces are when compared to leasing commercial real estate and maintaining their own physical space. More businesses will choose to work from flexible shared spaces in 2022 because of the cost savings and turnkey opportunities they provide. A growing number of businesses have discovered that they can reduce their overhead by avoiding the costs of establishing an office, purchasing business-class machines, and establishing the technology required to run their own office. Coworking/flexible office space memberships also include office management, maintenance and cleaning services.
