Poly foresees hybrid working to be the future
“Workspaces in the next era –
In the “next normal,” we need to create workspaces that give people choice places to collaborate, think, create or simply check in with others.
Home working and co-working spaces will rise in prominence, but even with all the benefits they bring, we’ll still see a need for a central company workspace for idea generation, collaboration and to give the workforce its sense of identity.
Therefore, we foresee that hybrid working is the future. Traditional offices won’t disappear, but it will take new form and shape and people will split their time between home office and office. There will be an effort to reduce the actual office space, and workplaces will be fitted out differently catering to the need to meet and collaborate on projects. Even if this move to reduce physical office space does not become mainstream, organizations will have to repurpose or redesign the workspaces. The number of people physically attending a meeting will reduce, with some opting to continue to interact through video and collaboration solutions. There will be a need to have smaller huddle rooms for when colleagues choose to interact face-to-face - these huddle rooms will be fitted with high quality videoconferencing systems.
Across all these workspaces, the focus will be on creating environments that motivate and empower hybrid workers to be productive and do their best work. A few tips I would like to give for getting into the next era are -
Rethink work patterns - Hybrid working brings flexibility on ocation, times and days that work is carried out. Review and revise work-from-home policies and focus on what employees need to be productive in their role.
Foster better collaboration - Encourage inclusive and productive work as teams become more virtual in nature. Create engaging and productive virtual workspaces, using noise-cancelling and intelligent acoustic solutions in dynamic headsets and video soundbars.
Optimize investment - Banish under-utilized office spaces that bring little return on real estate costs. Prioritize investment beyond the office walls to create flexible, collaborative, technology enabled personal workspaces everywhere”.
