Office fitouts and refurbishments have always needed to keep up with the times, however, since the pandemic, work spaces must now evolve to suit different requirements. Productivity is always high on the list for any office refurbishments or new fitouts, however these spaces now need to be more welcoming to employees.
This is because of the Great Resignation, a movement that began during the pandemic lockdowns. With time to reassess their lives, many employees became unhappy with their work/life balance which no longer suited their needs.
Working from home became a motivating factor that has resulted in a hybrid model that combines both remote work with time at the office.
This means that office fitouts and refurbishments need to be highly flexible whilst at the same time making employees feel at home when at the office.
Safety, collaborative spaces, face-to-face interactions and relaxation spaces are all strategies that can be used to help employees feel comfortable at work and part of a community.
