Remote work isn’t something that appeared in our lives only during the pandemic. A survey of business leaders at the Global Leadership Summit in London already in 2014 found that 34% said more than half of their company’s full-time workforce would be working remotely by 2020. A full 25% said more than three-quarters would not work in a traditional office by 2020.
The same time working only from home isn’t a solution. People still want to engage with colleagues in person. It’s why 50% prefer to go into the office. A workplace will shift away from a place where people simply go to work, and into a place where people want to meet, socialize, and work with each other.
In this situation to stay flexible and effectively use office desks may be tricky, but there is a solution. How could employers reduce the company’s operating costs when implementing intelligent engineering systems?
Today the economic situation and an additional factor of complexity in the form of a pandemic stimulate companies to look for new models for organizing the work process and rational use of their resources. Business models are being reassessed and people’s needs are changing. New technologies emerge as a result of analyzing these changes in order to offer better solutions and better services. The Booking solution to book hot desks in your office is a radically new approach to the operation and workspace management.
Why does it work?
KRC Research conducted the survey for Staples Business Advantage. This study obtained data from more than a thousand office employees in the US and Canada.
The survey results show that office workers often prefer to work outside the office. Thanks to innovative technologies, they are no longer tied to their desktops in the office. On the other hand, only 29% of workplaces offer flexible seating, but 70% of those who do say it improves their efficiency and fosters a more stable relationship with their employer.
Those critical management issues need to be considered when providing a responsive and effective humansupport service to underpin a wide variety of transient work patterns,
undertaken at different venues and at dispersed locations. In the future, facilities management may need tomove nearer to the core of an organization’s business in order to support the “free-style” deployment of itshuman resources to working practices that are increasing space and time flexibility.
