From London to Glasgow, flexible workspaces are opening up across the UK as businesses adapt to our new way of working. Businesses throughout the UK have been incorporating video call seating areas, changing facilities, kitchens, showers and break out rooms to create flexible office spaces that are built for the future.
Over the years, we have undertaken these types of projects for a wide variety of clients. We are particularly proud of a project that fits into this category – commissioned by Sky for their contact centre in Livingstone, we completed a commercial fit out to create various breakout pods. These breakout pods were designed and installed to provide staff with an area dedicated to relaxation and socialising. This client wanted to create the pods to improve staff well-being, which has become more highlighted for many companies over the past year based on the world’s events and everyday life in general:
Here are some of the key ways that you can create a workspace built for a post-pandemic world:
Video or ‘Zoom’ booths
For many international companies who had worked with colleagues across the globe, keeping in touch via video conference wasn’t a new thing.
But since the pandemic, people at all levels of a business have become used to using video calls as their main way of hosting or attending meetings. And as a degree of uncertainty continues for the time being and as more companies introduce hybrid working models, meetings via video call are here to stay.
But how does that work in an open place office? It doesn’t really. That’s why dedicated video spaces or booths are a great solution to give staff the privacy they need to stay connected with colleagues, clients, and customers.
A Mix of Dedicated Desks, Meeting Rooms & Co-working Areas
Many workplaces and flexible workspaces are moving away from the traditional hot desk design and moving to a model that works better for overall health and wellbeing.
Having large desks where people can collaborate will continue to be important, but so will creating smaller desk areas where people can concentrate in quiet spaces. This is in addition to meeting rooms which will remain an important fixture for many companies.
Office pods which can be adapted as break out areas or meeting places will also be an attractive alternative to the closed meeting spaces of the past. They can often be more cost-effective and still provide a break away from the open plan office space.
Light, Space and Integrated Technology
We work with designers and architects on a regular basis to assist in making the best use of the space you have. We find this collaboration works well when creating a new design for your office space. This benefits employees and creates a modern, welcoming environment for customers.
