Since the onset of COVID-19, the world as we know it has changed and what once felt certain has now become open to opportunity. Nowhere more is this evident than in the workplace – whether that be a commercial office building, an education facility, a medical centre, a technology hub or any other place where ‘workers’ gather.
As employees around the globe have reverted to remote working, and discovered both the pros and cons of merging home life and work life, questions are being asked about how workplaces need to change to accommodate this new way of operating.
In this thought leadership series, we explore the considerations workplace owners, developers and operators need to take into account when either adjusting an existing workplace to accommodate this new way of working, or developing an entirely new place of employment.
To offer a good return on investment for owners and developers, be cost effective for employers and attractive to the current, new and emerging workforce, workplaces need to meet fundamental human needs, values and expectations as well as commercial imperatives.
