Welcome to the New Hybrid Office
Companies large and small are being challenged to re-think their physical office spaces to meet a new mode of operations driven by a workforce which may remain, to some unknown degree, at least partially remote in the future. So where does all this “unknown” leave us?
Somewhere in the middle.
The “hybrid workplace” is largely undefined, but generally speaking it involves a more transient workforce and an office space that supports partially on-site and partially remote staff. The new physical office may need to support “hot desking” or hoteling stations for temporary employee desk space merely for the hours working at the office. Meeting spaces are equipped with the tools necessary for local and remote collaboration using standardized tools that work seamlessly with the employee’s everyday devices.
Business owners, Supervisors, Operations and Facilities leaders are all wondering how to transition to this new reality. They are tackling a potential re-design and formulating a plan to manage these spaces as well as staff who come and go whilst complying with capacity restrictions that may be dictated by policy and regulation. They are forced to re-think space utilization, volumes and capacities, essential and non-essential assets and remain sensitive to the needs of their dynamic workforce. Simultaneously they’re balancing an evolution of workplace culture and the goal of further enhancements in workplace productivity.
Organizations need a way to equip staff with the ability to reserve desk space, meeting spaces, and other office facilities so they can ensure their time is productive while at the office. This includes having the necessary tools when they get there, and tools that just work. At the same time they must avoid over-booking, over crowding, and have a consistent reservation experience whether they are at home, at work, or anywhere in between.
Any tools must be fluid and easy to use for all staff, otherwise they simply will not be used. The system must be scalable and flexible and cannot be a burden for internal teams to manage and support. In fact, no burden at all.
