New trends in office design show that traditional workplaces have been replaced with modern spaces. Therefore, many commercial properties have started to change their appearance and go for a sophisticated approach in order to attract companies that are looking for new offices.
We live in the era of Silicon Valley where the image of working people is a combination of collaborative spaces combined with entertainment areas for employees to chill during their breaks. This concept is now driving every company looking to get top talent workers that seem so difficult to find nowadays.
Due to the fact that there is a talent shortage, it is imperative to engage employees with workplaces that actually support their wants and needs. The most convenient tactic that helps recruiting and retaining valuable talent is to create vibrant offices and provide flexibility; key points for attracting the best and brightest people.
Nowadays, more people are working remotely and not at their desk. This is why it is crucial for the employees to be supported with proper technology and business process that allows them to work from different parts of the world. Companies need to be aware of the mobility requirements and to give more flexible space for workers that may come to visit from another floor or building. Also, in terms of office design, mobility may require more “unassigned” or touchdown space for those employees that are out of the office for a significant portion of the day.
The flipside to creating a working environment based on new trends in office design is the ultimate way of communicating a message of sophistication to a company clients or third parties.
