It’s clear that the physical workplace will remain a critical part of our working life to support employee productivity, creativity and team culture. But that doesn’t mean business as usual. Nearly all the tenants we've spoken to in our research said they need their office space to support flexible working patterns in future.
Landlords have to make sure they can provide that adaptability, and also recognise that flexible working puts different demands on the tech too. It’s about offering the right set up to support people dialling in from anywhere, brainstorming, desk-sharing and collaboration across the office.
