The discussion on the future of work in offices seems not to end. With growing optimism over the summer months, we are again on the wave of the pandemic. Obviously that has a huge impact on the way how and where we will work. With a lot of uncertainty, are there any tips that can help to shape the workplace today? Agnieszka Bulus-Trando from BiznesINFO.TV and FMC27News talked to market leaders about their conclusions about the workplace. What are the key insights?
“In order to retain tenants or attract new ones, we should provide an answer to all possible office needs of our tenants. A lot of companies do not fully know how their future will look like and they prefer to choose flexible lease which do not commit them to a long lease agreements. Also many of them just want to focus on the business, while the operator will take care of all the matters related to the operating in the office.” – Rafał Pisklewicz, Team Leader Office Poland & Group Leasing CEE, IMMOFINANZ
“Mapping the company’s culture in the arrangement of office space is one of the most important issues in designing a functional office. Office arrangements will be aimed at making the space as flexible and multifunctional as possible.” – Konrad Krusiewicz, CEO, The Design Group
“We have a mix of 5 generations in the labor market. Each of them has different needs and expectations. Therefore, the trend of Activity Based Office is the absolute future. We need to pay more attention to the internal audit among employees to find out what offices they expect.”- Oskar Kasiński – CEO, HR Design Group
“We recommend our clients to invite employees, so-called change ambassadors, to the process of developing the new office models. What’s important is to ask them what is good for the business, and not what they would like. With a high degree of trust and commitment to decision-making by employees, we can count on a large dose of common sense and a pro-business approach.” – Krzysztof Misiak – Head of Poland, Cushman & Wakefield.
