The design of the average work place has been rapidly changing over the past few years. In 2020 many companies are interested in focusing on increasing adoption for flexible workspaces. As workplace policies change and as transitions occur towards a digital workplace, the implementation of projects that focus on company culture and hospitality are growing higher in priority. Here are some of the biggest ways that workplaces are evolving for 2020:
Priority on Comfort
The amenities that are offered by a typical workplace are changing for 2020. Many employees are seeking perks in workplace design such as areas for lounges, sofas and even green space. People want to feel relaxed and comfortable in a workspace and this means having an office space that is cosier and more comfortable.
With a rise in technology such as sensors on workplace data, more companies are interested in learning behaviour of people using the workforce. Big data and tracking is helping to balance efficiency in modern workspaces and it can help with gathering new understanding of employee behaviour. Working to find modern workspaces that are more efficient means utilizing a balancing act between modern tracking technology.
Defining Culture in a Workspace
No modern workspace is a one-size-fits-all solution. Many companies are interested in building a workspace that is defined by their own workplace culture. This means prioritizing the needs of employees and visitors on site as well as creating an environment that is designed for the needs of each employee or department.
These are some of the biggest trends to consider in designing the workplace for the year 2020. If you are going to be opening up of business this year or working to redesign your space, these are some of the top elements that you should consider in creating a modern workspace design.
