3 Ways Remote Work is Impacting Office Design Trends

3 Ways Remote Work is Impacting Office Design Trends

 

Data collected as part of PwC’s US Remote Work Survey, published last month, points to the overwhelming success of remote work scenarios for both employees and employers. In fact, 83% of employers reported that the shift to remote work has been good for their company, compared to 73% in PwC’s June 2020 survey. Further, more than half of employees (55%) would prefer to be remote at least three days a week once pandemic concerns subside — slightly down from the 59% who said the same in June.

 

These findings demonstrate that whether intentionally, or by default, in the near future as vaccines become more widely available and businesses start to return to normalcy, many may opt for hybrid workplaces where employees rotate in and out of office. This is driving some significant changes in how offices are being designed, and here are three trends to look for:

 

  • We’ve learned from the pandemic that businesses must adapt quickly to disruption. This means that the future workplace will need movable furnishings and barriers that promote social distancing and policies that enable and encourage remote work, when it makes sense.
  • Secure access to business critical applications and mobility to support anytime, anywhere work scenarios have moved to the forefront during the pandemic, as key considerations for businesses of all sizes. In the future, the businesses will need to increase their investment in technologies and solutions that support user-friendly and safe workspaces for employees, while enabling them to collaborate and work well as a team.
  • As employees return to the workplace, there will need to be a renewed focus on health and wellness as people adapt to the changes in the workplace and workstyles driven by the pandemic. Spaces that are both physically comforting and emotionally engaging will be required to support workplace wellness. As a result, we may see a rise in “resimercial design,” meaning that companies could opt to mix residential and commercial office features to help employees feel more at home in their workspaces.

 

These are just a few of the ways that office design may change in the post-pandemic era. If your office is moving or downsizing to accommodate the new hybrid workforce, King Companies is here to help. We have decades of experience in providing a one-stop-shop for companies of all sizes and vertical industries – from law firms and medical offices to laboratories and libraries to data centers and film studios – that are on the move.
