Future Workplace 2016

Invisible Offices, Tangible Productivity



An office with no fixed-space arrangements, cubicles, immovable desktops and partitions. A fluid office that enables you to log on anytime, anywhere from your own devices, and with no rigid 9-to-5 working hours.


Rising costs, tough economic conditions, and the difficulty to find and retain the right talents is changing the way we look at workplaces. Businesses need to go past fixed-space arrangements with rigid working hours, and ensure all their staff are focused on creating value while at work. New technologies can help, but these need to be deploying alongside new HR practices and strategies for flexible working, mobility and co-working. Done correctly, you can have an engaged, productive workforce and become more competitive.


But how can companies adapt their current working spaces to include new flexible structures and reduce costs? What strategies, processes and technology need to be put in place to be able to achieve this?
