Since April last year, companies globally have been able to sustain operations and maintain growth due to adaptable & agile workforce. The workforce has quickly shifted gears as necessitated by the evolving situations and demonstrated flexibility and resiliency throughout the multiple phases of WFH, back to office and hybrid models in the past 1 year. This distributed, fluid workforce has altered the purpose of office from being a place where work gets done to an employee-centric place where teams collaborate to drive transformations.
Key Highlights:
  • The whole gamut of how organisations operate have been changing as there is a shift from wanting traditional office spaces to more collaborative spaces.
  • It has become important to respect employees’ need for safety and hygiene. Organisations must evolve their workplace strategies in accordance and ensure a healthy space for employees to work in.
  • Flexible workspace operators will play a big role in the future as companies increasingly look towards adopting a hybrid work model.
  • Partnerships with flexible workspace operators not only benefits organisations with operational cost advantages but also makes geographic reach for new talent easier.
  • The purpose of a workplace is changing steadily as remote working and work from home has redefined the way we work, how we measure productivity and how collaboration can be achieved.
  • Workforce is the crucial part of the organisation and as such as leaders must constantly adapt to meet the ever-evolving needs of employees as they are the future.
  • Remote working and work from home are more likely to become widely accepted due to its success in the past one year. However, companies need to keep in mind that they need to assess the pros and cons and accordingly decide based on what is best for the organisation.
  • Going ahead, organisations need to create workplaces that employees want to come back to.
  • Flexible workplaces are more likely to become the norm as it allows employees to work from their preferred locations, reduce commute time and offer them greater freedom and convenience.
