Modern office plays an increasingly central role for companies.
World of work is moving towards a basic compromise: most roles with the possibility of working remotely through smart working will maintain a hybrid set-up, with a need for office presence that best balances organizational needs and worker preferences.
In this new hybrid paradigm, executives need to rethink the function of the office and a new vision of the industry is needed.
Workplace designers in recent decades have favored the paradigm of offices designed to support both collaboration between operators and autonomous and focused work.
Workers feel more efficient and productive working from home, but also recognize the collaborative benefits of working in the office and meeting with colleagues and supervisors.
Site visits are also essential to reconnect hybrid workers with the organizational culture and promote opportunities for cross-functional communication and collaboration, avoiding the construction of barriers dictated by distance, counterproductive to innovation.
Physical office, therefore, should be a place that supports sharing, one-on-one connection with supervisors and mentors, and casual meetings with colleagues across the organization.
Physical office is thus reinvented as a collaborative hub where modern design needs different styles of space: from open to closed, from casual to formal, from discussion-oriented to collaborative design-oriented.
A traditional needs analysis approach would suggest that each of these spaces should have a customized solution, suited to its unique purpose.
