Design Motivating Environments to Encourage Spending Time in the Office

As we all know, the global pandemic created a new normal for millions of office-based workers around the world. Work moved from the office to the home, and communication and collaboration moved to digital mediums on computers, tablets, and smartphones. Now, with vaccines rising and the most dangerous health threats receding, employers are looking to bring workforces back to the office.

But guess what? Many don’t want to return. The increased flexibility of working from home has its appeal – no commutes and every day is casual Friday. No matter how gourmet the coffee and food are at the office, what they have at home is more convenient. And the ability to pick up a child from school, get out for a refreshing walk or workout at a break in the day, or be home for a service call gives workers a sense of flexibility and empowerment. A variety of surveys have made it clear – more than half of information workers don’t want to return to the office full-time. And many of today’s most successful companies like Facebook and Microsoft have already announced that they will allow some employees to continue working remotely permanently, creating a new hybrid work model that is anything but well understood at the moment.

Yet, with the new reality of coping with a hybrid model, only 13% of organizations are planning to reduce their physical space footprint, while over 50% of workers want to work at least part of the time remotely. So the new challenge is: how do you use your office space to create an engaging hybrid workplace environment that gets people in the office? And one that doesn’t exclude those working remotely? Let’s explore the implications for your physical locations in Phoenix, AZ and around the world.
